At North Cadbury C of E Primary School, we provide a high-quality mathematics education, therefore providing a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically but also a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.
Using the National Curriculum for mathematics, we aim to ensure that all pupils:
- become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately
- reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language
- can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions
