Mathematics is a critical life skill which significantly affects children’s life chances and the possibilities that are available to them. We believe that all pupils can achieve in mathematics and we have high expectations for every child.
Our focus is, first and foremost, on ensuring that children develop fluency in the fundamentals of maths with an ability to recall age appropriate number facts quickly and accurately. This will support them to become confident, enthusiastic mathematicians who are eager to explore the wonderful world of Maths.
We believe that children should be supported to develop a deep conceptual understanding of Mathematics and do this through using a wide range of visual models and practical resources to support our teaching and the children’s learning.
We aim to ensure that children can reason mathematically, explaining their ideas confidently, fluently and clearly using age-appropriate mathematical vocabulary.
We want to inspire a positive, ‘can do’ approach in our pupils and to develop enthusiastic, resilient mathematicians who demonstrate mathematical curiosity, initiative and an eagerness to solve problems, take risks and accept challenges. We want our children to enjoy what they are doing!
Finally, we intend to broaden children’s knowledge and understanding of how mathematics is used in everyday life and the wider world and to understand the possibilities that maths can open up for them.
