Mathematics is an essential life skill and we seek to develop a secure understanding and promote interest in, and enjoyment of, the subject. Maths is taught daily throughout the school through a structured curriculum, primarily using the INSPIRE programme and online POWERMATHS resource. Our approach seeks to embed a deep understanding by exploring concepts thoroughly using small learning steps. All new concepts are initially investigated using practical resources and games, and then developed through increasingly challenging problem-solving opportunities.
In line with the National Curriculum, we aim to ensure that all pupils:
The majority of pupils will move through the curriculum at broadly the same pace. Pupils who grasp concepts rapidly will be challenged through rich and sophisticated problems before any acceleration through new content. Those who are not sufficiently fluent with earlier material will have opportunities to consolidate their understanding, including through additional practice, before moving on.
