Maths at St Andrew’s Primary School is taught in a way that enables children to understand the world that we live in and encourages them to understand relationships, patterns and changes in quantity, space, shape and measure through their everyday lives. This models and enables our children to become fluent in fundamental maths whilst ensuring varied and frequent practice of solving increasingly challenging and complex problems to develop their conceptual understanding. We also support our children in building their ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and we build upon their earliest perceptual and cognitive learning to encourage our children to solve problems and provide justified reasoning through real life contexts with resilience. Our Maths curriculum aims to establish a positive learning environment which focuses on fluency, problem solving and reasoning in varied and exciting ways. 

We aim to:

  • Develop this understanding through a structured, practical and fun curriculum which fosters and celebrates each child’s contribution and achievements.
  • Enable our children to be fluent in the fundamentals of maths, through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems, so that they develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately.
  • Build on the earliest perceptual and cognitive learning through to problem solving and reasoning in real life situations.
  • Enable our pupils to use their learning to become as independent as possible in their adult lives.

Cross Curricular Activities

At St Andrew's we believe that Math’s skills can be consolidated and enhanced when pupils are able to apply and develop them in other areas of the curriculum. Here are some examples of links that have been made between Maths and other subjects throughout the year.

Our Learning

Please look at the documents below for information about how we teach Maths at St Andrew's, this is based on the White Rose Scheme of Learning enhanced with additional materials to meet our children's needs. In EYFS and Key Stage 1 we also utilise Mastering Number.
