Vision for Mathematics

At St Faith’s C of E Primary School, our intent for mathematics is to nurture confident, independent, resilient and open-minded problem solvers who have developed a secure and rich network of mathematical knowledge. 

We seek to help children to develop fluent conceptual understanding in each area of mathematics, according to the expectations of the National Curriculum. Beyond this, we aim for children to be able to apply both logical and creative mathematic reasoning skills to their everyday lives; showing curiosity to generate, hypothesise and solve their own problems.  

 We want children to thoroughly enjoy learning mathematics by appreciating the real-life contexts for their learning and by developing a growth mind-set. The power of ‘yet’ in mathematics helps children to recognise the value of making and learning from mistakes, to take pride in their learning, and to reap the reward of persevering to overcome challenge; all of which pupils can take forward into their adult lives.  


Structure and organisation

At St Faith’s Primary School, Maths skills are taught daily in whole class teaching, with small group and 1:1 interventions used to ensure all children are ready to progress. 


Children are taught in Year Groups of around 20 children so that teachers can construct and adapt a curriculum that specifically suits the needs of their learners. 


Teachers construct and adapt a curriculum that specifically suits the needs of their learners, following a clear pathway of progression, guided by outlines from White Rose Mathematics. Lessons are careful sequenced to achieve the aims of the National Curriculum and designed so that children have maximum opportunity to deepen their learning.  


St Faith’s mathematics promotes consistently high expectations, using additional resources alongside those from White Rose, such as from NCETM, NRich, TTRockstars, I See Maths and other carefully made and selected tools by the class teacher, to ensure sufficient opportunities are provided for higher level reasoning and problem solving.
