Mathematics is central to learning. Our children's lives are full of numbers. Mathematics also helps them to achieve well in other subjects. It is vital to how our children learn and live.

Our curriculum is designed so that the children become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, through varied and frequent practice, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately. They will reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and use mathematical language. They will solve problems by applying their mathematics in a variety of contexts, including breaking problems into simpler steps, working collaboratively and persevering in seeking solutions. We want children to have a “growth mindset” attitude: to be able to learn from mistakes and not be fearful to have a go at challenging activities.
