Maths supports children to make sense of the world around them by developing their curiosity to calculate, reason and solve problems.
Our aim is for all of our children to understand how mathematics is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment. A high-quality mathematics education therefore provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.
At Clifton CE Primary, Maths is taught as a stand-alone subject as well as woven through other subjects as an essential component of other curriculum areas. We follow the White Rose scheme of learning and supporting materials, as the overviews are designed to support a mastery approach to teaching and learning, in addition to supporting the aims and objectives of the National Curriculum.
