‘’A high-quality mathematics education provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.’’ Department for Education, 2013.
Mathematics is integral to all aspects of life and with that in mind we endeavour to ensure that children will develop a positive and enthusiastic attitude towards mathematics. Mathematics equips pupils with a unique set of tools that allows them to understand the world in which they live. The National Curriculum Mathematics Programme of Study describes what pupils must learn in each year group. Within our mathematics lessons, we ensure continuity, progression and high expectations for attainment in mathematics. We are committed to ensuring that all pupils achieve mastery in the key concepts of mathematics so that they have a strong understanding of these areas before they progress with their mathematical learning.
