We aim to help each child attain an overall competence in each aspect of maths by ensuring they have a clear grasp of the basic computational skills of addition, subtraction, division and multiplication, and a developing understanding of more complex mathematical ideas. To achieve this, great emphasis is placed on the use of apparatus and practical activities in all classes. Daily opportunity is given for children to develop their competence in mental arithmetic as well as written calculations. Problem-solving and investigational work are used to increase confidence and mathematical understanding.
Maths skills are taught progressively through the school.
