When teaching the Maths curriculum at Carleton Endowed Primary School we strive to ensure that all learners acquire the necessary knowledge, skills and values to become confident mathematicians, problem solvers and lifelong learners.
The Maths curriculum is designed to provide pupils with creative and engaging maths, reasoning and problem solving opportunities so that they are successfully prepared for life in the modern world. Maths forms the core of our curriculum and it is our intention to foster a ‘passion for mathematical understanding’ culture throughout the school. T
he following statements therefore represent the key intentions that drive forward our Mathematics curriculum.
Our intentions are:
- To promote a culture and love for mathematics to all pupils
- To ensure that every child becomes a motivated mathematician and wants to ‘have a go’ at solving maths work before they leave Carleton Endowed CE (VA) Primary School
- To deliver a progressive Maths Curriculum which teaches knowledge and skills
Mathematics Curriculum Implementation
Our Maths curriculum incorporates the use of high-quality mathematics work using a CPA approach (Concrete, Pictorial, Abstract), which are tailored to the needs and context of the learners in the school.
Through these high quality resources, we provide opportunities to teach key mathematical strategies to support reasoning and problem solving. Strategic planning against age related expectations, the unique need of learners and the teaching of other subjects ensures that our Mathematics curriculum is not only well-balanced and progressive but also purposeful and stimulating for all of our children.
White Rose Maths Hub planning and resources are used as a starting point for our mathematics curriculum as these resources are of high quality and provide a well-planned structure to mathematical learning throughout the school.
Mathematics Curriculum Impact
We endeavour to ensure that all children achieve their maximum potential regarding their attainment in Mathematics.
Rigorous monitoring exercises are carried out throughout the year in order to measure the impact of the curriculum design. Together with the Headteacher and senior leadership, the Mathematics subject leader monitors the teaching and learning of Mathematics across the school, evaluates pupil voice, shares effective practice and new initiatives and identifies the subject’ key strengths and areas for development.
Teachers throughout the school carefully assess the impact of each lesson and the performance of all individuals to ensure that pupils are on track to reach the expectations of our curriculum. We intend the impact of our Mathematics curriculum will ensure that our pupils are self motivated learners and are effectively prepared for life in the modern world.
