The mathematics curriculum has been designed in order for all pupils to develop a deep understanding of mathematics so that future any mathematics is built upon solid foundations. Our intent is that all pupils have the necessary skills and knowledge required to be successful in the subject in the next stage of their academic life. The aim of the Maths Department is to make learning a very positive and fun experience allowing pupils to develop the skills and depth of knowledge which will lead to an inbuilt confidence in their own mathematical ability
The mathematics curriculum is a spiral curriculum and is structured so that it builds upon learning from the previous year group and has been designed so that links between concepts can be made. Pupils are given the time and opportunity to move their learning into their long term memory through opportunities to master their fluency and subject knowledge and apply this to more challenging problems thus developing their reasoning skills.
