We aim to develop in our pupils a sound foundation of mathematical skills. Children are supported to become fluent in these fundamentals with regular practice. We aim for the children to have rapid and accurate recall of mathematical facts. This will enable them to follow a line of mathematical enquiry: reasoning mathematically and justifying or proving their solutions.
To develop a deeper understanding, there is an emphasis on developing mastery of a mathematical concept. This is encouraged at all ages where children will be encouraged to think about what they know to support their line of enquiry.
Tasks are designed to equip the children with the skills required to solve a problem. We aim to instil a positive attitude towards Maths by designing activities of exploration, encouraging the children to discover patterns and relationships themselves. In addition, at all ages, activities are designed to be practical and relevant with links being made to the outside world.
