Our aims in teaching mathematics are that all children should achieve a high standard in numeracy and in a range of mathematical skills which they are able to apply with understanding and confidence. We expect them to enjoy the subject for its own intrinsic worth and study it with increasing confidence and a sense of achievement. We strive to promote positive attitudes to mathematics along with an understanding of its importance in everyday situations and the world of work. Our teaching centres on key skills in numeracy involving a wide range of practical techniques and resources. Considerable emphasis is placed on mental maths. This is a key area where parents can get involved in helping their children with mathematics at home. Support resources for these SMIRFs (Space Mission Instant Recall Facts) are again available via the school website.
