The National Curriculum for Maths aims to ensure that all children:

  • Become fluent in the fundamentals of Mathematics
  • Are able to reason mathematically
  • Can solve problems by applying their Mathematics

In order to meet these aims at Crags Community School, these skills are embedded within Maths and Arithmetic lessons and developed progressively over time using a mastery approach supported by documentation from recognised providers such as Mathematics Mastery, White Rose Maths and NCETM.

We are committed to ensuring that children are able to recognise the importance of Maths in the wider world and that they are also able to use their mathematical skills and knowledge confidently in other subject areas and contexts. We want all children to enjoy Maths and to experience success in the subject, with the ability to reason mathematically.

The programmes of study are taught in distinct domains, however where possible links are made allowing connections across ideas to help develop fluency, Mathematical reasoning and competence in solving increasingly sophisticated problems. Children should also apply their Mathematical knowledge to other subjects such as Science, ICT, Geography and P.E.
