Our children excel in maths. The teaching is dynamic and utilises the most up-to-date techniques in mastery.
The whole school focuses on the use of bar modelling to provide pictorial representations, enabling children to master even the most abstract of concepts. A strong grasp of the four operations is secured at an early age enabling children to move on quickly, applying their understanding to reasoning and problem solving.
Our children are encouraged to take part in the national Primary Maths Challenge run by the Maths Association. Year on Year, a number of our children progress to the Bonus Round gaining medals for their efforts. To reach this level, children are operating at the top 1.5% of the population taking the test. This is an incredible accolade for our children and indeed our school.
Gifted mathematicians take part in weekly maths workshops where they are taught higher level concepts providing extra challenge and scope.
