Vision Statement

At St Edmund’s we want our children and their families to develop a positive and resilient attitude towards Mathematics as an interesting and valuable subject which will enable them to achieve success in life.

Pupils will build their understanding of Mathematics through developing arithmetic fluency alongside the skills of problem-solving and reasoning. Opportunities are given for pupils to access the Mathematics curriculum through a range of strategies: working cooperatively, collaboratively and independently. Through targeted teaching of vocabulary and structured conversations, our pupils develop the ability to express their ideas fluently and verbalise their reasoning clearly.

By providing clearly-structured opportunities for cross-curricular application of mathematics skills, we ensure that pupils see Mathematics as an integral and essential part of daily life.

If you would like to know more about the mathematics curriculum at St Edmund's, please arrange an appointment with your child's teacher or Mrs Dumbleton.
