The school’s aims in Mathematical Development are:
To develop learners enthusiasm and enjoyment of mathematics.
To equip pupils with a powerful mathematical tool that provides:
A precise means of communication using appropriate mathematical vocabulary, numbers, symbols and shapes;
The mathematical skills for problem solving.
To increase the confidence of each pupil in mathematics, enabling them to apply their knowledge and skills with assurance across the curriculum relating these to everyday experiences.
To apply key skills across the curriculum.
We offer pupils a broad and balanced Mathematical Development / Mathematics curriculum in order to promote effective learning opportunities based on the Foundation Phase Framework and Key Stage 2 National Curriculum 2008. Maths is taught as a discrete subject but wherever possible, links between subject areas are harnessed and developed effectively. The formal requirements of the National Curriculum are supported with enriched and varied learning opportunities by a range of visits and visitors that the school organises.
