We are a Rights Respecting School
Article 29 - Education should develop each child's personality and talents to the full. It should also help you learn to live peacefully, protect the environment and respect other people.
At our school we endeavour to develop the children’s’ mathematical fluency, in order to create confident and able mathematicians. As such, we include lots of opportunities to practise and learn number facts.
Mathematical reasoning is developed alongside mental recall so that the importance of mathematics and its application in everyday life can be fully appreciated. The pupils are taught to apply arithmetic fluently to problems, understand and use measures, make estimates and sense check their work. They are taught to apply their mathematics to both routine and non-routine problems, including breaking down more complex problems into a series of simpler steps. Through links to other subjects that mathematics becomes meaningful and enjoyable for the children.
