Mathematics at Crowcroft Park Primary School

Intent

The 2014 National Curriculum for Mathematics aims to ensure that all children:

  • Become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics;
  • Are able to reason mathematically;
  • Can solve problems by applying their mathematics.

At Crowcroft Park Primary School, we embed each of these skills by following a mastery approach.  Through this approach, our intention is to provide all children with full access to the curriculum.  We want all children to enjoy mathematics and experience success with the subject.  We aim to develop deep understanding and teaching conceptual understanding lies at the heart of everything we do.  Progression is ensured through sequenced lessons  where small steps are taught, culminating in pupils acquiring competence and confidence with objectives covered.  We believe this leads to our pupils becoming independent mathematicians who are well equipped to apply their learning in the wider world.

Implementation

We use the White Rose Maths Primary Schemes of Learning, which can be found by following the link below:

We plan for progression and an outline of this can be found by following the link below:

In order to meet the needs of all pupils, teachers may choose to adapt the schemes.  This may include providing further opportunities for practice and consolidation.  Carefully designed variation within this helps to build fluency and understanding of underlying mathematical concepts.

We seek to inspire a curiosity about and a love of mathematics through providing enrichment opportunities.  This includes hosting 'Maths Problem Solving Days'.
