Mathematics

Mathematics is a core subject in the National Curriculum, and we use the National Curriculum for the basis of implementing the statutory requirements of the programme of study for Mathematics. The school has adopted a Maths Mastery approach.

 

Aims

The national curriculum for mathematics aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time
  •  develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately.
  • reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language
  • can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking

 

We carry out curriculum planning in Mathematics in three phases (long-term, medium-term and short-term). The National Curriculum gives a detailed outline of what we teach in the long term, while our three termly teaching programmes identify the key objectives in Mathematics that we teach in each year.  Our medium-term Mathematics plans, which are adapted from the National Curriculum and White Rose Planning, give details of the main teaching objectives for each term and define what we teach. They ensure an appropriate balance and distribution of work across each term.

These plans are reviewed by the subject leader.  The class teacher completes the weekly/daily plans for the teaching of Mathematics. These weekly/daily plans list the specific learning objectives for each lesson and give details of how lessons are to be taught.
