At St Mary's C of E Primary School, we want every child to achieve their best by offering a sequential, structured, challenging and fun curriculum. We want our children to leave with fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills, which will help them in real life situations.
The 2014 National Curriculum says:
Mathematics is a creative and highly inter-connected discipline that has been developed over centuries, providing the solution to some of history’s most intriguing problems. 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.
