Philosophy and Aims at Pye Bank Primary School
All children can and will achieve
We want our children to receive a high-quality mathematics education that ensures that ALL pupils are fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, have the ability to reason mathematically and can apply their knowledge and understanding to solve problems. We also want them to have an appreciation of the power of mathematics and a sense of fun and curiosity about the subject. We want the children to see Mathematics as being relevant to their world and applicable to everyday life as well as being something that they will need as they move on through their school life and ultimately to the world of employment. To that end, a high-quality, inter-related and creative Maths experience should be one that develops the children’s ability to think mathematically and one which allows them to apply the skills they have developed in a variety of ways.
A Mastery Curriculum for the new National Curriculum Mathematics
We use Inspire Maths which is a text book based programme, aimed to deepen understanding rather than accelerate teaching with no limits to learning.
It is one of the only 2 textbooks approved by the DfE and NCETM, and is a sustained and consistent scheme, with a carefully designed spiral progression and an emphasis on a concrete- pictorial-abstract approach.
We are committed to closing the attainment gap and ensuring that every child has an abundance of opportunity to succeed. As such, our expectation is that the large majority of pupils will progress ‘through the programmes of study at broadly the same pace.’ Ofsted Handbook August 2016.
