Maths - Core Subject

Our schemes of work are enriched and enhanced as necessary to meet the requirements of the new mathematics national curriculum for England.

Standards of pupils’ attainment are measured against expectations for schools in England, using UK standardised assessments.

Pupils are assessed regularly in their mathematical skills, through ongoing formative assessment and termly summative assessments, to make sure their progress is on a par or exceeding these expectations and pupils’ progress and attainment are formally reported home on a termly basis.

Pupil-centred and active learning are evident in the classroom with tasks and activities being differentiated to cater for the needs of individual children to ensure all make sufficient progress. 

Teaching Assistants in the younger year groups provide additional opportunities for small group work and individual support to take place, f pupils need extra assistance in their learning or need to be further extended in class.
