Mathematics is a fundamental life skill.  It helps children to make sense of the world around them.  Opportunities are orchestrated to provide learners with real life contexts in which to apply knowledge and skills.


Our aim is to develop an interest in, and enjoyment of, mathematics by creating learners who are:


  • confident with numbers and have a good ‘number sense’
  • agile in their recall, use and application of basic facts
  • fluent in mental arithmetic methods
  • accurate in their understanding of calculation
  • able to make connections by identifying patterns
  • able to make decisions and reason about approaches, solutions and  conclusions
  • flexible in their approaches in order that they can solve problems and investigate concepts
