Belief + Hard Work + Understanding = Success


Our Maths Vision:


At Holy Rood, we believe that mathematics is an important, creative discipline that helps us to understand and change the world. We want all pupils at Holy Rood to experience the beauty, power and enjoyment of mathematics and develop a sense of curiosity about the subject.


In order to achieve this, we foster positive ‘can do’ attitudes, believe all children can achieve in mathematics and teach for secure and deep understanding of mathematical concepts. We use mistakes and misunderstandings as an essential part of learning and provide challenge through rich and sophisticated problems before acceleration through new content.


Curriculum Intent: Skills


We aim for all pupils to:


  • Become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics (see year by year Curriculum Maps) so that they develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately.
  • Solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of problems with increasing sophistication, including in unfamiliar contexts and to model real-life scenarios.
  • Reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry and develop and present a justification, argument or proof using mathematical language.
  • Have an appreciation of number and number operations, which enables mental calculations and written procedures to be performed efficiently, fluently and accurately.


Curriculum Implementation:


Please see the Maths Policy for further detail relating to our maths curriculum design at Holy Rood.
