Intent

It is our aim at Valley View that all children enjoy maths, feel confident and develop an enthusiasm for the subject. We also want them to develop their growth mindset by taking risks, challenging themselves and persevering when something becomes more difficult. We aim for them to become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics through varied and frequent practice, and to be able to solve increasingly complex problems over time. We want to equip them with the skills of calculation, reasoning and problem solving that they need in life beyond school.

 

 

Implementation

 At Valley View, we follow the National Curriculum, which ensures consistency and progression throughout the school. This is supported by the use of White Rose Maths Hub schemes of learning which is carefully planned using a small-step approach. This ensures that children work through the curriculum in a way which allows them to build on prior learning so their knowledge gradually builds into long-term, secure and adaptable understanding. Children are supported in their learning by a range of practical and pictorial strategies which promote deep understanding of key concepts.
