Our aim is to equip all pupils with the skills and confidence to solve a range of problems through fluency with numbers and mathematical reasoning. Children are encouraged to see the mathematics that surrounds them every day and enjoy developing vital life skills in this subject through our teaching for mastery approach.
Through following the National Curriculum, children expand their understanding through exploration, problem solving, discussion and practical experience.
A key aspect of teaching throughout the school involves the use of practical apparatus to promote understanding of mathematical processes and ideas. Carefully planned activities encourage children to work mentally, observe patterns, make predictions and discuss relationships. Mathematics skills are also used in other subjects such as science, computing and art.
