Aims of the Mathematics Curriculum
As we teach the Mathematics curriculum, our teaching and learning will be based upon the following three aims.
The National Curriculum for Mathematics aims to ensure that all pupils:
- become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately.
- reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language.
- can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.

Our Calculations Policy - NEW CONTENT COMING SOON
We are currently writing a new Calculation Policy which is line with the programmes of study taken from the National Curriculum for Mathematics (2014) and our current scheme of work.
This policy will provide guidance on the calculation strategies, methods and progression from the Early Years Foundation Stage (Reception) right through to Year 6 using our method of concrete, pictorial and abstract method of solving calculations. It will aim to help parents to further assist their children, as well as provide guidelines for teachers to provide consistency in the teaching of mathematics across our school. Although not exhaustive, it outlines the key strategies taught across our schools.
