Intent for Mathematics

At Saint Mary’s, we aim to develop a life-long love for mathematics through the delivery of engaging, high-quality lessons. We value and recognise the importance of learning effective problem solving and reasoning skills. Consequently, our mathematics lessons offer a rich diet of problem solving and reasoning tasks. Additionally, as a school, we believe in children developing conceptual understanding alongside fluent procedural knowledge which is reflected in our provision for varied fluency in lessons and daily fluency drills: in KS1 number bonds, in KS2 multiplication table and related division facts recall.

Through delivering our curriculum, broadly following the White Rose maths scheme, our aim is that our pupils meet their end of year expectations, enabling them to move successfully between the years expectations within our progressive curriculum. Our aim is that pupils leave St. Mary’s as passionate, confident, resilient, fluent problem-solving mathematicians, who are enabled to succeed within secondary school. Our long-term and ultimate aim is that many of our pupils choose to study mathematics at A-Level, go on to study STEM subjects at university and progress within careers in this sector. Due to this ambition, we strive to provide the best possible education for mathematics for every child at Saint Mary’s.
