Statement of Intent: Mathematics
Our vision is for the children at Burhill to become efficient and confident mathematicians, who have a wide range of strategies – both written and mental – to solve calculations and problems. The children will be able to make links in their learning and apply skills learnt previously. They will enjoy mathematics and love the challenge provided in lessons. They will be confident problem solvers and have an ability to break problems down into smaller steps. They are ready for their next stage of learning and have a secure understanding of key concepts.
Every member of staff is committed to ensuring high expectations and is determined that all children will reach their full potential. Staff draw upon their expert subject knowledge to ensure a rich mathematics curriculum is enjoyed by all pupils.
