Maths Vision and Aims


  • To promote a love of Maths
  • To enable pupils:
    • to become mathematicians who are
      • Enthusiastic
      • Creative
      • Articulate
    • To be able to use their knowledge of Maths to solve problems
  • To promote Maths as a tool for life that:
    • Enables us to
      • Make sense of the world
      • Analyse and communicate information and ideas
      • Investigate and solve real life problems
  • To assist every pupil:
    • To understand the importance of Maths in everyday life
    • To gain the skills to carry out efficient mental and written calculations
    • To achieve their full potential


  • We pursue a mastery approach to Maths in order to develop the pupils’ knowledge and understanding of mathematical concepts
  • The Maths National Curriculum is delivered through the use of the White Rose Maths scheme
  • Through the use of manipulatives and images, the pupils progress from concrete to pictorial through to abstract
  • Concrete resources are used to develop pupils’ conceptual understanding of place value and the four operations
  • Teaching staff model correct mathematical vocabulary
  • Pupils are encouraged to use the modelled mathematical vocabulary to explain their understanding and knowledge to others
  • Connections are made between concrete, pictorial and abstract ideas to enable pupils to master concepts
  • Pupils are able to practise their times tables knowledge using TTRockstars and are encouraged to take part in regular interClass and interHouse TTRockstars competitions
  • Where gaps in knowledge have been identified pupils receive appropriate support and intervention
  • Pupils undertake regular formal assessments


  • Pupils:
    • Display a positive and resilient attitude towards Maths
    • Are able to articulate their understanding of mathematical concepts using an increasingly sophisticated mathematical vocabulary
    • Achieve Age Related Expectations for their year group
    • Some pupils will achieve greater depth within Age Related Expectations
