Maths Intent Statement

At Longhoughton CE Primary School, we endeavour to provide the highest possible quality of mathematical education that meets the requirements specified in the National Curriculum. We aim to provide a high standard of mathematical education that will promote knowledge, skills and understanding at all levels to prepare children for the world around them.

We are committed to ensuring all of our work focuses on a teaching for mastery approach and have adopted the 'White Rose Maths Hub' approach to provide a curriculum plan that will support 'Teaching for Mastery'. It is a curriculum that is coherently planned and sequenced through a series of small, sequential steps and it offers both breadth and depth to all learners; including our weekly CLIC sessions incorporating Times Table Rock Stars.

A significant amount of time is devoted to developing key number concepts each year. This ensures students build their fluency. Students who are successful with number are much more confident mathematicians.
