The intent of our mathematics curriculum is provide a mastery curriculum, which is accessible to all and will maximise the development of every child’s ability and academic achievement. We deliver lessons that are creative and engaging and aligned with the nationally recognised White Rose Maths scheme and enriched with support from NCETM support materials. We want children to make rich connections across mathematical ideas through using manipulatives and models and images in every lesson to develop fluency, mathematical reasoning and competence in solving increasingly sophisticated problems. We intend for our pupils to be able to apply their mathematical knowledge to science and other subjects.
We want our pupils to realise that mathematics has been developed over centuries, providing the solution to some of history’s most intriguing problems. We want them to know that it is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment. As our pupils progress, we intend for our pupils to be able to understand the world, have an ability to reason mathematically, have an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.
