Our vision and purpose for maths is to wherever possible endeavour to link the children’s mathematical learning to real life situations, through problem solving and practical activities.  This will inspire them to think how mathematics could be used to shape their future lives and to help them to understand the importance of mathematics in a variety of different jobs and vocations.    

Teaching is underpinned by methodical curriculum design and supported by carefully crafted lessons and resources to foster deep conceptual and procedural knowledge. Practice and consolidation play a central role. Carefully designed variation within this builds fluency and understanding of underlying mathematical concepts in tandem. Teachers use precise questioning in class to test conceptual and procedural knowledge, and assess pupils regularly to identify those requiring intervention so that all pupils keep up 

However, decisions about when to progress will always be based on the security of pupils’ understanding and their readiness to progress to the next stage. Pupils who grasp concepts rapidly will be challenged through being offered rich and sophisticated problems to develop mastery before any acceleration through new content.   

To meet the needs of our pupils there is an additional emphasis on number and where appropriate is blocked at the beginning of a term to embed skills and concepts needs to apply these to problem solving tasks.
