Mathematics
Mathematics is diverse, engaging and essential in equipping pupils with the right skills to reach their future destination, whatever that may be. Our aim is to enable pupils to build a secure framework of mathematical reasoning, which they can use and apply with confidence. Our maths curriculum allows pupils to develop fluent knowledge, skills and understanding of mathematical methods and concepts. They acquire, select and apply mathematical techniques to solve problems and reason mathematically, making deductions and inferences, and drawing conclusions. We set challenging targets in conjunction with high expectations for all pupils; targets which we hope to achieve through a variety of teaching and learning practices to engage and motivate pupils.
