Maths in our school aims to inspire children to love maths and gain enjoyment through a growing self confidence in their ability. We want our children to be fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics so that they can confidently, and independently, apply their learning to problem solve and reason; equipping them to be successful with ‘everyday’ maths and in future careers such as engineering, architecture and business. This requires resilience and daily practice in order for children to have a conceptual understanding of maths topics and to feel confident when communicating their knowledge and approaching more challenging activities. We encourage children to be reflective; identifying their strengths and the areas they wish to develop, as well as recognising what skills they have which enable them to be successful.
