“Mathematics knows no races or geographic boundaries; for mathematics, the cultural world is one country.”

David Hilbert


Mathematics is a highly interconnected discipline that provides students with the life skills necessary to become functional, numerate members of society. Developing a growth mindset through deeper thinking and risk taking will allow the students to gain enjoyment and curiosity about mathematics. Students are equipped with the belief that with hard work they can achieve. All students are encouraged to have a ‘can do’ attitude and are regularly challenged to think independently and reason mathematically.

Curriculum Intent

Our curriculum is built with the aims of the national curriculum in mind: that students become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, can reason mathematically and can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems.

We aim to develop the skills necessary to enjoy the subject to its full and to maximise their potential in it through:

  • developing fluent knowledge, skills and understanding of mathematical methods and concepts
  • acquiring, selecting and applying mathematical techniques to solve problems
  • reasoning mathematically, making deductions and inferences and drawing conclusions
  • comprehending, interpreting and communicating mathematical information in a variety of forms appropriate to the information and context.


Curriculum Implementation

Curriculum – The mathematics curriculum is structured into units for each year group. Each unit builds upon learning from the previous units and has been designed so that links between concepts can be made. Units are designed to ensure that pupils have time to deepen their understanding as well as making connections across the different areas of learning.

Pedagogical approach – The school is currently on a journey to embedding a deep learning approach in mathematics. We strongly believe this will help us to deliver our mathematical intent and raise attainment and enjoyment of mathematical learning throughout the school.

All lessons/series of lesson will contain the following:

  1. Effective questioning that promotes discussion
  2. Problem solving that links topics together and promotes retrieval
  3. Tasks that promote deep thinking giving all pupils the opportunity to reason and explain.


Classroom practices – In classrooms, there are many systems in place to support us in achieving our aims.

  • The majority of lessons will start with retrieval practice to activate prior knowledge that will be needed to access the lesson
  • Some lessons will include a Hook task to promote discussion and mathematical thinking
  • Every maths lesson includes an element of fluency, reasoning and problem solving to develop a depth of understanding across the mathematics curriculum
  • Where appropriate concrete and pictorial resources are used to support the learning
  • Problem solving tasks are carefully constructed to include links with other concepts from the mathematics curriculum

Students will routinely be offered opportunities to work in pairs and groups to develop oracy skills

Learning Journey

Maths Learning Journey


Be Ambitious

Ambitious activities are those that take your regular curriculum further. They take the subjects you study in the classroom beyond that which your teacher has taught you or what you’ve done for home learning. For example, you may go into more depth on something you picked up in the classroom or learn about a new topic altogether. These activities are normally in the form of extra reading, but they can take many other forms, like watching videos online, downloading podcasts, attending lectures, visiting museums or entering academic competitions.

In the future, employers or universities will be interested to hear about what ambitious activities you have engaged in; they will be interested in what you have learnt and impressed by your efforts. Click here for further details
