The Maths Curriculum

The children access a maths every day following the Government’s guidelines.

Maths is taught largely as a whole class, with a balance between teaching skills, problem solving and using and applying the skills in a variety of contexts. At times, some children may need group intervention or one to one support if they are not meeting the required expectation for their age or have gaps in their skills.

The teachers use a wide variety of materials to help deliver the maths curriculum and lessons can have a practical, investigative or written focus.

The curriculum is significantly more demanding than it ever was. We use the White Rose Maths Scheme as a basis for all our planning and, like English, we have created a set of non-negotiables which can be found below - these are objectives that we believe the children need to have achieved by the end of the year if they are to be successful the following year.
