Mathematics

Mathematics is a central and essential part of everyday life and, as such, is an integral part of the school curriculum. We recognise how important it is for our children to develop mathematical thinking because through mathematics children can quantify the world and better understand it. It is a skill necessary for life, as well as a way of training the mind. Our children have a right to attain the highest level in mathematics the can each hope to achieve.

Our aims in teaching mathematics are:

  • That all children will enjoy mathematics
  • That all children will achieve a high standard in numeracy and other mathematical skills, according to their ability and in line with our Mission Statement
  • That all children will experience a sense of achievement
  • That all children will be able to apply and use their mathematical knowledge and skills
  • That each child is part of a continuous process and progression of mathematical language, skills, concepts and experiences
  • That each child views mathematics as part of the Creative Curriculum
