We aim to foster children’s mathematical understanding and help all children to develop a confident,
skilled and resilient approach to all aspects of mathematics. Our Maths teaching is based on the
‘Mastery approach’ to learning whereby children develop a deep and secure understanding of
mathematical procedures and concepts. This allows them to apply their understanding to real-life
problems and use their knowledge to help them in everyday life.
We use practical and written mathematical activities to develop children’s understanding in number,
shape, measures and data. The children are taught to use these mathematical skills as an important tool
to equip them for adult life, working independently and co-operatively to investigate and explore concepts.
Mathematics Policy sets out how maths is taught in our school.
Written Calculation policy outlines the processes and methods of written calculation across the school.
Mental Calculation policy outlines strategies to support oral and mental calculation.
