The school has adopted the National Curriculum for Mathematics as defined by the Department for Education
Mathematics equips children with a uniquely powerful set of tools to understand and change the world. These tools include logical reasoning, problem-solving skills, and the ability to think in abstract ways.
The school places great emphasis on the child’s acquisition of basic skills, especially the rapid recall of number bonds and times tables. The children are taught to think mathematically and to problem-solve from a number of different perspectives with a focus on understanding the mathematics behind the questions.
Children are set according to ability for maths from year 3 upwards. These groups are flexible and are reviewed carefully by teachers throughout the year.
