We aim to develop lively, enquiring minds and encourage our pupils to become self-motivated, confident and capable learners so they can solve problems and acquire a secure, long-term and adaptable understanding of maths. Mathematics is relevant to their world and provides vital knowledge and skills for every-day life, both within school and beyond.
Our teachers create engaging mathematics for all learners and encourage creativity and reasoning. We want to help children develop an appreciation of, and enjoyment in maths through rich and challenging activities. In addition, we help them appreciate how it relates to learning in other subjects, across the curriculum.

In addition, weekly planning documents outline the implementation of our longer-term intent.
