Our children enjoy maths and thrive on being asked to complete regular challenges, puzzles, problem-solving and investigations. Children are regularly asked to explain their reasoning and justify their opinions with challenges such as “Prove it!” “Explain how you know!” and “Is there a better way of doing that?”

Children are encouraged to develop their understanding of strategies and build up a ‘tool kit’ of approaches to use in lessons. We aim for every child to become an ‘independent learner’ and to take an active interest in their studies and in their progress. We believe that if the best environment and ethos are in place, our school community will continue to make excellent progress.
