Why do we learn Maths?

Individual and unique:

Every student brings their own unique experiences to maths lessons.  These experiences give them different insights into how to tackle and solve a range of mathematical problems.  All students’ ideas are shared and celebrated, enabling the whole class to grow.


Students are encouraged to look for patterns in maths and to explore numbers and shapes.  They work to understand the relationships between numbers and how they fit into a larger picture.


Maths is taught using a mastery style approach which has the core belief that all pupils can achieve in this subject.  Resources and teaching styles are used to encourage a depth of understanding.


Students work together as a class on topics and support one another so that no pupil is left behind.  Learning is taken in small steps, which include variation, to ensure a fullness of understanding.
