Maths Curriculum

Guide to Maths

We follow the National Framework for Teaching Mathematics. Children are assessed and taught at the appropriate next level for them. Place Value and Mental Strategies are taught within every unit.

Key Skills including number bonds, times tables, time and money are covered on a daily basis for 1hr each week
