Curriculum Statement

The mathematics curriculum is tailored to ensure that every student has the opportunity to reach their potential and to develop high levels of numeracy in order to become well-rounded citizens in the world we live in. Our curriculum aims to ensure every student is mathematically confident to function in everyday life and to use maths successfully in his or her chosen career. More able students will be confident in applying their mathematical knowledge to unfamiliar contexts, providing them with the transferable skills to succeed in other subjects such as Science, Geography and Technology. Our curriculum is based on developing a deep understanding of concepts and builds up mathematical concepts in each child. This will ensure that students develop a secure, long-term and adaptable understanding of mathematics, which will allow opportunities to develop mathematical fluency and reasoning, as well as students being able to learn how to solve maths problems without having to memorise procedures. Our mathematics curriculum fosters resilience on a daily basis through problem solving and understanding of complex concepts, encouraging students to persevere and try different methods to arrive at correct solutions. Students should be encouraged to build on, and learn from their mistakes in all maths lessons.
