Our aims in Maths are for the children to acquire knowledge and skills and to become effective in using mathematical language and numbers. We aim to develop in all children an interest, enjoyment and confidence in Mathematics as a practical tool for use all through adult life.


Throughout the curriculum great emphasis is placed upon basic skills, the 4 operations, problem solving, practical activities and mental and oral work, taught through real– life mathematics. We aim to integrate fluency, reasoning and problem solving throughout every lesson and use a range of activities to really challenge thinking at every level. Additionally, we use a range of concrete resources from EYFS to year 6 to really develop our understanding and apply our new learning. 


We follow White Rose Schemes of learning in each year group to ensure full coverage of the National Curriculum and to ensure a good level of challenge for children of all abilities.
