“Pure mathematics is, in its way, the poetry of logical ideas.” – Albert Einstein, German theoretical physicist

Maths Intent

At the heart of our innovative and inclusive Mathematics curriculum is facilitating opportunities for children to develop skills and knowledge which will support them in understanding the world around them. Putting children at the forefront of their learning, supported by all of our committed members of staff, is paramount to providing children with a 21st century education, ready for their next steps. Teachers provide opportunities and model high standards of mathematical vocabulary, detecting patterns in the number system, thinking logically and placing a focus on perceiving how Maths surrounds their everyday lives.

We align ourselves with the aims of the National Curriculum, which state that ALL children should:

– become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics;

– be able to use their conceptual understanding to reason mathematically;

– be able to apply their understanding of Mathematics and the world around them to solve problems.

Embedded within our Mathematics provision, which we aim to instil, are core values of resilience, perseverance and determination, key values that are not standalone; they allow children to flourish in real-life situations.
