At St Andrew’s our intent for Maths is to ensure children are fluent with the Mathematical basics, can reason clearly and are confident when reading and solving a range of problems. We aim to produce mathematicians that are courageous and feel safe in taking a risk by providing an inclusive environment, so that they can maximise learning through experiencing maths in subjects across the curriculum and the within the wider world. We aim to do this by providing opportunities for children to experience real life maths within our community.
In EYFS and KS1 we aim to develop children's understanding of key mathematical concepts, using a range of concrete resources. We believe this will prepare them for KS2, where children will embed this knowledge and use a range of CPA approaches to explore and master their maths knowledge.
