In Maths, we aim to equip all pupils with the ability to think independently in applied and abstract ways.  By finding connections, children can learn to reason, solve problems and assess risk.  We want our children to see Maths as a creative and powerful discipline, with its own unique language.  We provide all children with a high-quality mathematics education, to be used as a foundation for understanding the world.  We support children in developing the ability to reason mathematically. We want them to grow a love and appreciation for the beauty and power of Maths, and an instilled sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.

Our Curriculum reflects the ethos & aims of the school as well as the context from which our children derive. This means that our curriculum provides the necessary building blocks to develop the necessary knowledge & skills, whilst also promoting British Values, healthy lifestyles & mental well-being, plus excellent behaviour & attitudes. It is underpinned with a large emphasis on SMSC development, a strong practical outworking for others in line with our Christian ethos, whilst also building character & readiness for the next stages of education & the learning journey beyond.

Aims of the National Curriculum in Maths:

The aim for Maths in the national curriculum is for pupils to develop fluency, mathematical reasoning and competence in solving increasingly sophisticated problems. They should also apply their mathematical knowledge to science and other subjects.

The national curriculum for Maths aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately.
  • reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language
  • can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and nonroutine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.

IMPACT of our Maths Curriculum:

We aim for our teaching of Maths to have a great impact on the lives of our children not only academically, but also in laying the foundations for social mobility through the promotion of British Values & SMSC & getting them ready for the next stages of their education.

Readiness for Next Stage of Education: How does this subject prepare our children for the next stage of their educational journey at secondary school & beyond?

We endeavour to ensure that the sequence of content enables our children to progress whilst they are with us, but also to provide the building blocks necessary to build on at secondary school & their learning journey beyond. Underlying all of this is our emphasis on Leaning Culture which provides the underlying principles of attitude, resilience & character.

Promotion of Social Mobility: How does this subject promote social mobility?

Our aim is that no child is disadvantaged by their background situation & that, as a school, we provide everything that a child needs so that there are no gaps in mathematical learning. As a result, we ensure that children have a broad range of curriculum experiences, free access to a wide variety of resources, regular opportunities to engage in practical mathematical investigations and exposure and opportunity to use the correct mathematical vocabulary to express themselves.  We believe that the language of mathematics should have no social or economic barriers.
