At St. George’s Catholic Primary School, we value Mathematics as a creative and inter-connected discipline that is essential to everyday life. A high-quality maths education provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.
We aim to provide pupils with a mathematics curriculum and high-quality teaching to produce individuals who are numerate, creative, independent, inquisitive, enquiring, and confident. The aims of the 2014 National Curriculum are for our pupils to:
- Become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics through varied and frequent practice with complexity increasing over time.
- Develop conceptual understanding and ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately.
- Reason mathematically, follow a line of enquiry, conjecture relationships and generalisations.
- Develop an argument, justification and proof by using mathematical language.
- Problem solve by applying knowledge to a variety of routine and non-routine problems. Breaking problems into simpler steps and persevering in answering.
St George’s Catholic Primary School uses the Scheme of Work from the White Rose Maths Hub. More information about this scheme of work can be found at www.whiterosemaths.com.
We are also a member of the Mobius Maths Hub that provides teaching staff with outstanding professional development. More information about this can be found at www.mobiusmathshub.org.uk.
