At St. John’s Walham Green we aim to equip all learners with the skills and knowledge to enjoy and succeed in mathematics. Our intent, alongside, the National Curriculum highlights the importance of mathematical fluency, mathematical reasoning and problem solving.
We consequently follow a scheme that values the 5 core principles of mastery: coherence, fluency, representation & structure, variation and mathematical thinking, one that ultimately aims to be accessible and inclusive for all learners. We intend to deliver a curriculum that is designed cumulatively and provides children with a deep conceptual understanding that is then built upon throughout their education.
Through questioning we aim to develop the children’s ability to communicate and reason using precise mathematical language while inspiring children to become confident mathematical thinkers. We understand that maths goes beyond the classroom and is a fundamental part of everyday life, essential in technology, science and critical to one’s financial literacy. We therefore value the importance of cross curricular links, learning practically and learning outside where possible. We intend for all learners to leave school equipped with a curiosity and understanding of mathematics that is relevant and useful in their future studies and careers.
