The national curriculum for mathematics aims to ensure that all pupils:
Mathematics is an important creative discipline that helps us to understand and change the world. We want all pupils at Hazel Leys to experience the enjoyment of mathematics and develop a sense of curiosity about the subject with a clear understanding.
We foster a positive ‘can do’ attitude and we promote the fact that ‘We can all do maths!’ We believe all children can achieve in mathematics and that there is no ceiling to learning. We teach for secure and deep understanding of mathematical concepts through progressive tasks. Mistakes and misconceptions are considered an essential part of learning and teachers help children to view them as such. We believe that all children should be given the opportunity to be challenged and explore their mathematics more deeply. As such any child, no matter their current attainment, will receive extra challenges if they reach a good understanding of the current maths learning. All children will be given daily opportunities to reason, prove and problems solve.
