Our aim is for all children to become confident and competent mathematicians. Our teaching model is designed to develop our children as fluent mathematicians who can reason and problem solve effectively by applying their skills to real life contexts.
Our calculation policy provides a structured and consistent approach to the teaching and learning of the operations of number and is based on the principle of developing a deep understanding through the use of concrete resources, moving towards pictorial representation before the abstract or more formal methods are introduced. Children at all stages have access to concrete resources, if needed, to support their mastery of skill. Structured lesson planning also ensures there is a focus on the development of application of maths through reasoning.
Further opportunities for children to embed and apply mathematical skills are provided across the curriculum.
