Mathematics

We follow the National Curriculum for maths, placing great emphasis on core skills.  

On a weekly basis all children from year one onwards complete a mental arithmetic test and a four rules test, the latter to ensure that an understanding of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division are embedded from a very early age.

Teachers' planning ensures a breadth of opporitunites in fluency, reasoning and problem-solving.

We have a Primary Maths Mastery Specialist teacher at the school who ensures that our children' s maths lessons are forward-thinking in design and have a high impact on outcomes.

In 2017, 98% of children in year six met the national expected standard for maths with 44% attaining the higher level.
