Mathematics is an essential tool for understanding the world and accessing learning across the curriculum. We believe that mathematics is for all and encourage the belief that all children can succeed and improve their understanding in mathematics by working hard. Children are taught through a whole-class, interactive, mastery approach to teaching. Learning is carefully sequenced and introduced in small steps to ensure sufficient time is given for children to master each concept and so that any children struggling to grasp new learning are quickly identified and supported. Key facts, such as multiplication tables and addition facts, are learnt to automaticity to build children’s fluency and flexibility with number and reduce the possibility of cognitive overload when learning new material. We also consider these facts and other selected calculation skills and vocabulary to form the foundational knowledge in each year group. This is prioritised for all learners and carefully monitored throughout their journey through school.
