We aim to develop our pupils’ ability to reason mathematically, problem solve and develop fluency and conceptual understanding and aim to encourage resilience and perseverance.
We provide a balanced, progressive curriculum which caters for the needs of all pupils, striving to achieve their potential. We use a concrete-pictorial-abstract approach to maths to aid pupils’ understanding. Our maths teaching uses a mastery approach - there is an expectation that all pupils are capable of achieving high standards in maths. Pupils move through the different stages of their learning at their own pace. Differentiation is achieved by emphasising deep knowledge, extension activities and through individual support and intervention.
Pupils demonstrate quick recall of facts and procedures. They show confidence in believing that they will achieve and are keen to attempt a range of problems. Pupils are developing their ability to reason verbally, pictorially and in written form; to make connections between topics; and to independently apply their knowledge to a range of increasingly complex problems. Pupils make measurable progress against National Curriculum objectives.
