Mathematics is essential to everyday life. Through teaching and learning in this area we aim to ensure that all pupils become confident and fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time. Our teaching programme is based on the Primary National Curriculum 2014 and sets out what children learn on a year-by-year basis.

The Calculation policy for each Phase shows the progression in calculation (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) and how this works in line with the National Curriculum. The consistent use of the CPA (concrete, pictorial, abstract) approach across our teaching and learning through the Power Maths resources helps children develop mastery across all the operations in an efficient and reliable way.
