We want our children to receive an exceptional mathematics education where all pupils develop their knowledge, and habits necessary to master mathematical concepts. This will be done by delivering a carefully planned, sequential curriculum which develops the children’s ability to think mathematically and enhance their life choices. 

Aims of our Mathematics Curriculum

  • All pupils become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately. 
  • All pupils reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language.
  • All pupils can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.

Our Curriculum

Our maths curriculum is planned in line with the National Curriculum, and is broken down into units to ensure mastery of each area of maths. At Pye Bank we are pleased to closely follow the White Rose Mathematics scheme across the school. This means that children are not streamed by ability because we expect all children to be given the opportunity to achieve age related expectations. The white Rose approach aims to help all pupils to master mathematics. Mastery teaching provides our children with the time to acquire a deep and transferable understanding of mathematical concepts. The white Rose approach aims to help all pupils to master mathematics. Application of measure is taught across the maths curriculum, and statistics continues to be embedded into the science curriculum once taught explicitly in maths sessions.
