Intent

At St Francis of Assisi Church of England Primary School, we are mathematicians, logical thinkers, problem solvers and decision makers! Mathematics teaching and learning in our school intends to provide a foundation for our children to flourish beyond our school community; it aims to encourage our children to shine light into the wider world. Mathematics is an integral part of the world around us and is an engaging and valuable subject to teach to embed the necessary skills and knowledge for daily life.

Our maths curriculum intends to build cultural capital for all our children.  ​ Our mathematics curriculum has been designed so that our children access all the statutory outcomes of the mathematics National Curriculum and for pupils in EYFS, The Early Years Statutory Framework, in a connected and progressive order.  We want all our pupils to become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, to be able to reason and to solve problems embracing the National Curriculum aims. We want our children to be visualisers so they understand mathematics and make connections between different representations. We want our children to be describers using mathematical language and questioning so they can discuss the mathematics they are doing, and so support them to take ideas further.  We want our children to be experimenters so as well as being fluent mathematicians, they love and want to learn more about mathematics.
