Our curriculum intent for mathematics reflects the purpose and aims of the national curriculum by helping our pupils to:
● become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately
● reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language
● solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions

Every year in February we take part in the NSPCC Number Day, children and staff are encouraged to raise money for the charity by coming in to school dressed as something mathematical or number-themed. Throughout the day the children are encouraged to take part in mathematical activities relating to all aspects of the curriculum.
