“The good progress that the large majority of pupils now make provides clear evidence that teaching is good overall.” (OFSTED 2014)
Mathematics is taught in daily lessons using a calculation framework developed under national guidance. However, we also place great emphasis on independent and investigational work.
Furthermore, our approach to mental maths is given high priority throughout all key stages. This accompanies a wide range of equipment and activities that help us deliver the Mathematics curriculum.
