Mathematics can help us better understand and describe the world around us. We believe mathematical intelligence is expandable, and that every child can learn mathematics, given the appropriate learning experiences within and beyond the classroom.
We aim to baseline every learner to better support them. Our planning allows us enough flexibility to fill the gaps in knowledge of some learners whilst stretching the ones who know more. This involves, with the challenge of working with learners at different starting points, working at very different levels.
We also aim to develop ‘higher-order skills’ such as numeracy, the ability to think logically and quantitatively, to handle data and to analyse and solve problems. Our curriculum is designed to give a good mathematical education and to help develop these higher-order skills.
