‘Mathematics is a creative and highly interconnected discipline that has been developed over centuries providing the solution to some of history’s most intriguing problems. It is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment. A high quality mathematical education therefore provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the power and beauty of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.’ (DfE 2013)
At Nether Alderley Primary School we have developed our approach to teaching mathematics based on the National Curriculum. We use White Rose mathematics as a spine for progression from reception to year 6. This approach is based on building a culture of deep understanding, confidence and competence in maths – a culture that produces strong, secure learning and real progress.
