The intent of our Mathematics curriculum is to be accessible to all and to maximise the development of every child’s ability and academic achievement. Every child has an equal opportunity to access maths at their level and pace and this is catered for through differentiation to enhance a safe learning environment. We want children to make rich connections across Mathematical ideas to develop fluency, reasoning and problem solving and their taught resilience will enhance and develop these skills. Within (and beyond) lessons, children are challenged with “next steps” and extensions, creating a culture, where, within lessons, our learners want to be ambitious in all that they access and achieve. Our pupils will learn to apply their Mathematical knowledge not only within their Mathematics lessons but also across the curriculum, for example in Art, Science, Geography and DT. We want our pupils to understand that a confident understanding of Mathematics is the bedrock for Science, Technology and Engineering (STEM), necessary for the management of every day finances and a crucial component of most forms of employment. As our pupils progress, we intend that they: be able to calculate swiftly and accurately; have the ability to reason mathematically; have an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.
