Maths

We aim to provide a challenging, engaging mathematics curriculum which promotes a positive and confident attitude to maths as an exciting, creative and relevant subject.

We want all children to become confident and articulate mathematicians.

We achieve this by ensuring all of our pupils:

  • develop fluency in their mathematical understanding, being able to rapidly recall and apply their knowledge.
  • learn to reason mathematically, using mathematical language to explain their understanding.
  • can solve problems, through applying their mathematical knowledge in various contexts and using different strategies.

We have an exciting mathematics curriculum and children have access to a range of learning resources to develop a secure depth of understanding.

Please have a look at our calculation policies, which ensure children develop written and mental fluency:

We also believe that ‘knowledge is power’ when it comes to Maths. Children practise their ‘Number Essentials’ and ‘Knowledge Essentials’ to develop confidence and fluency:

We use ‘Times Table Rockstars’ to help pupils develop rapid recall of multiplication facts:

We often hold whole school maths days, each with a different focus, such as; Challenge Maths Day, Multicultural Maths Day and Maths through Art Day. We continue to encourage and foster a love of mathematical enquiry that enables children to be confident mathematicians.  Our outdoor learning initiatives are a great way for children to see maths in the world around them.
