Mathematics is a skill fundamental to daily life but is also crucial to the study of the sciences, technology and a range of other subjects which may form the basis of pupils’ future careers.
We want our children to become confident in the fundamentals of Mathematics so that they are efficient in using and selecting the appropriate written and mental methods, underpinned by mathematical concepts.
We want them to solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of problems with greater complexity, including in new situations and to model real-life scenarios.
We want them to reason mathematically, by following a line of enquiry and developing and presenting a justification, argument or proof using mathematical language.
