Through our teaching and learning in mathematics we aim to deliver a curriculum which is accessible to all and that will maximise the outcomes for every child so that they develop lifelong skills and knowledge.
We believe that mathematics encourages our pupils to calculate with fluency, accuracy and confidence, to use money and measures with precision and to develop spatial awareness. Mathematical learning also develops the skills of logic, reasoning, problem solving, resilience and discussion.
Aims and Intent
At Carnagill, we desire that all children will have a deep understanding of their mathematics and some will take their learning to a greater depth.
Through our teaching and learning in mathematics, we aim to deliver a curriculum with fluency and basic skills at its core and with reasoning and problem solving embedded within it. It is a curriculum that is accessible to all and that will maximise the outcomes for every child, so that they develop lifelong skills and knowledge.
By providing challenge for all learners, we seek to create independent and curious mathematicians who take pride in their work and who develop commitment and resilience in problem solving, thus raising the aspirations of our pupils to become the mathematicians of the future.
Please see our Maths policyfor more details.
Another useful document is our Calculations policy which outlines the methods we teach in school and the progression of teaching for those methods.
