Mathematics provides a means for organising, communicating and manipulating information. This means that we expect children not only to learn the basic skills of number and measure, but also to deal with aspects of shape and geometry, and the handling of data and statistics. We encourage children to develop a confident and positive attitude to the learning and understanding of mathematics. Children are encouraged to question, reason out and investigate different mathematical ideas. We have a calculation policy for Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division to ensure that all teachers and pupils are able to recognise their next steps for learning in Mathematics.

Pupils progress in Mathematics is monitored at least once every term by members of the school leadership team through scrutiny of planning, work, pupil progress meetings and learning walks as part of our on going school improvement plan.
