‘To Be The Best You Can Be’

Maths at St Andrew’s

We are committed to ensuring that children are able to recognise the importance of Maths in the wider world and that they are also able to use their mathematical skills and knowledge confidently in their lives in a range of different contexts. We want all children to enjoy Mathematics and to experience success in the subject, with the ability to reason mathematically. We are committed to developing children’s curiosity about the subject, as well as an appreciation of the beauty and power of Mathematics.

How we learn

We encourage an enthusiasm for Mathematics as a lively and exciting subject. We achieve this by encouragement, stimulation and a practical approach. We endeavour to present tasks that will challenge the pupils to think and this practice will then equip them well in life.

The basis for the programme of study is the National Mathematics Curriculum (2014). The emphasis is placed on a thorough grounding of basic concepts (fluency), whilst developing investigative minds capable of problem solving (reasoning and problem solving).
