Students will be secure in their understanding of mathematics, as demonstrated by an ability to explain, reason and apply their knowledge in unfamiliar situations using mathematical vocabulary.
Our aim is to provide an exceptional education at the heart of our community, which prepares our children to have a positive impact on the world in their own unique way. Education provides students with every available opportunity, regardless of their background. As a universal language, maths is one of the fundamental keys to many of these opportunities, as well as being a subject of beauty. Our mastery curriculum is built around knowledge and providing the children with the terminology to explore and explain their understanding. Every student has the right and potential to succeed in maths, as well as being made aware of the beauty and variety within the subject. The delivery of the curriculum will acknowledge that the accumulation of new knowledge can only be successful if it is built on pre-existing knowledge.
Our students have a natural love of maths and want to succeed, showing pride and enthusiasm in their learning. Mathematical knowledge provides the foundation on which other skills can be applied. Throughout the curriculum, students explore why methods work and how the steps of each method fit together. We place a strong emphasis on developing student's ability to explain these methods and apply them to new and different contexts, ensuring flexibility of this knowledge. The use of details mathematical language is key for students to e able to understand and explain, in depth, the skills that make up maths. The focus in all areas of maths is to develop a love of the knowledge learnt, demonstrated through the ability to explain, reason and apply their understanding.
