Our vision is for all children to become confident mathematicians. These pupils will become fluent in all domains of the mathematics curriculum and use reasoning and problem-solving skills efficiently and flexibly within different problems.
We want all children to flourish when they leave us in year 6 and take their mathematical skills with them to continue to build bright futures for themselves in their further education and beyond.
The overall aim of this subject in the national curriculum is to ensure that all pupils:
- 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
- Can 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.

Mathematics PolicyWe follow White Rose Maths for our long term and medium term planning within mathematics. This is a scheme to promote mastery and has a clear and coherent progression within each year group and from each year group to the next.
You can view a detailed document of toe progression of skills in each domain throughout each year group by following the link below.
We believe in equiping our children with a wealthy toolkit of methods, strategies and representations so they can tackle a range of different problems in different contexts. In order to achieve this, we have a calculation policy for each year group.
