Maths is a core subject and is taught discretely. However, where relevant, Maths is linked to other subjects.
Our Maths curriculum:
- has number at its heart – a large proportion of time is spent reinforcing number to build competency
- ensures teachers stay in the required key stage and support the ideal of depth before breadth
- provides plenty of opportunities to build reasoning and problem solving elements into the curriculum.
Mathematics equips pupils with the uniquely powerful set of tools to understand and change the world. These tools include logical reasoning, problem solving skills and the ability to think in abstract ways. Mathematics is important in everyday life. It is integral to all aspects of life, and with this in mind, we endeavour to ensure that children develop a positive and enthusiastic attitude towards mathematics that will stay with them. The National Curriculum for mathematics describes in detail what children must learn in each year group. Combined with the Ash Green Primary Academy Calculation Policy, this ensures continuity and progression and high expectations for attainment in mathematics.
We want to inspire our children to use mathematics to make rich connections and develop the necessary skills to make them “deep thinkers”, acquiring maths skills that can be recalled quickly and applied across the areas of maths and use their knowledge in other areas of the curriculum. We are passionate about developing our children, so they feel confident to take risks and become resilient when faced with a challenge.
