Mathematics develops a child’s ability to solve problems, develop fluency in calculations and reasoning opportunities to develop a deep understanding.

Our principal aim is that children have a clear understanding of the four calculations, fractions, shape and measure. We do this through daily mastery maths lessons, where lessons are developed in small steps with high quality modelling and scaffolding from the teacher.

Children are given the opportunity to explain their maths through talk partners, concrete apparatus and pictorial representation in a variety of ways. Maths is delivered in a fun and inspiring way with high expectations for all pupils.


Working walls are used to support pupils understanding and we run a range of maths interventions for pupils that need further support in mental calculations. Pre and post maths sessions are used to reinforce concepts.
