The national curriculum for mathematics places a strong emphasis on developing fluency, reasoning and problem solving. It also demonstrates a commitment to a mastery curriculum and we are dedicated to broadening and deepening children's mathematical understanding.

While mathematics may be taught discretely, project-based learning and rich mathematical tasks and contexts (including cross-curricular links and connections) support the teaching of mathematics in a lively, engaging and structured manner. Mathematics lessons can include practical work, investigation and mathematical games. The school aims to develop every child's mathematical skills, with a strong focus on fluent and efficient mental and written calculation strategies to support problem solving.

As the school is committed to raising standards and developing every child's self-esteem, the children are taught in fluid groups (we do not set our children) and targeted teaching focuses on individual needs.
