Mathematics is a creative and highly inter-connected discipline and is essential to everyday life, critical to science technology and engineering and necessary for most forms of employment. We provide a high quality mathematics education that provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the power of mathematics and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.
Our school bases the core work in mathematics around the National Curriculum which aims to ensure that all pupils:
- become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics developing 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 non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions
Maths is taught in a range of ways and through a range of subjects, encompassing practical work, computation and application of all skills taught.
We use a range of relevant age related mathematical equipment and resources to support children in their learning. We also use IT programs and a range of published materials to further enhance and enrich our Mathematics curriculum.
