Mathematics Statement of Intent
The intent of our mathematics curriculum is to ensure that every child enjoys mathematics and becomes an enthusiastic mathematician by developing their skills, knowledge and understanding through practical experiences that have relevance and purpose in everyday situations. It is important that children develop the skills of numeracy to become lifelong learners. They should be able to apply these skills in different situations across the curriculum and in daily living outside school.
We want every child to make connections across mathematical concepts in order to develop their fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills, and to be able to apply their mathematical knowledge in other curriculum areas.
We want to develop a numerate environment where mathematical risk-taking, creativity and logical thought are encouraged in order to develop independent learners.
It is essential that they understand its importance in being able to function effectively in everyday life, including carrying out employment and dealing with financial matters.
