“The intent of our Maths curriculum is to deliver high quality lessons that inspire all pupils to be confident mathematical thinkers.

We aim to provide opportunities for pupils to be fluent in number, which supports their problem solving and reasoning.

We want to provide opportunities to inspire mathematical minds and develop their vocabulary that helps to embed our values such as excellence and resilience.”


Following the introduction of the new National Curriculum, the emphasis has been to ensure that all children:

  • Become FLUENT

  • Can REASON and EXPLAIN mathematically


    This means that children need to be regularly exposed to opportunities involving increasingly complex problem solving which allows them to apply their maths knowledge. In doing so, they should be encouraged to develop an argument and line of enquiry which they can prove and justify using mathematical vocabulary. This includes the ability to break down problems into a series of steps.       


The impact of our mathematics curriculum is that children understand the relevance and importance of what they are learning and know that maths is a vital life skill that they will rely on in many areas of their daily life. Children have a positive view of maths due to learning in an environment where maths is promoted as being an exciting and enjoyable subject in which they can investigate and ask questions. They know that it is reasonable to make mistakes because this can strengthen their learning. Children are confident to ‘have a go’ and choose the equipment they need to help them to learn along with the strategies they think are best suited to each problem. Our maths books evidence work of a high standard of which children clearly take pride; the components of the teaching sequences demonstrate good coverage of fluency, reasoning and problem solving. Our feedback and interventions support children to strive to be the best mathematicians they can be while promoting the ethos that they are strong mathematicians who are eager to succeed..
