Our aim is to help children understand and enjoy using Mathematics in their daily life. The school teaches the National Curriculum, introduced in September 2014.  The curriculum is divided into separate strands including: number and place value, fractions, calculation, geometry, measure,algebra and statistics, ratio and proportion.  Children learn Mathematics in daily lessons and in other subjects where relevant. Time is spent on a wide range of mathematical skills and concepts with a strong emphasis on mental calculation to enable children to develop a range of skills (adding, subtracting, multiplying, dividing and estimating) and the ability to apply them within a variety of contexts. 

The school has a Maths Games Library available to all children. This provides children with games designed to develop and practise at home the mathematical skills acquired in school.  The popular  home-school 'Number Clubs' promotes the learning of key mental number and calculation facts and skills across key stages.
