Mathematics is a creative and highly inter-connected discipline. It is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment. A high-quality mathematics education therefore provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.
As part of the GLOW Hub, we are committed to the mastery approach of maths teaching. We use the White Rose Sequences of Learning to help plan lessons to build on prior knowledge - ensuring that pupils have conceptual understanding before moving on to the next step. Teachers use concrete, pictorial and abstract representations to enable learners to access and apply the maths learning.
Examples of the ways arithmetic aspects of the curriculum are engaged within the curriculum can be seen in our calculation policy (see the button to the right). Whilst this is not a rigid document, the progression of skills and clear modelling is utilised by teachers to support learners to comprehend, interact and succeed with mathematical principles throughout their journey here.
