Our goal is for the children to become confident, fluent and agile mathematicians who can expertly explain their mathematical processes through careful reasoning. Maths is taught throughout the school on a daily basis with planning following the White Rose and Power Maths approaches.
The mastery approach to teaching and learning aims for pupils to develop deep understanding of maths and display an understanding of strategies that in time can be deployed automatically.
Teaching for Mastery is based on the expectation that all children can achieve highly in maths.
Achieving highly in maths requires that children:
- Have a deep and flexible understanding of mathematical concepts;
- Are fluent in number facts;
- Develop fluency in calculation procedures.
The end goal and expectation is for all pupils to have acquired the fundamental facts and concepts of maths for their year or key stage. At this point they are ready to move confidently on to their next stage of maths.
