We strive for all children to reach age related expectations and the teaching of mathematics in our school is based on three key principles:
•All children become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, through consistent and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that they develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately.
•All children reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language.
•All children 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 policy below outlines our teaching approach and curriculum coverage.
