Statement of Intent: Mathematics

At Burhill Primary School, we enjoy the teaching and learning of mathematics. We build a culture in which all pupils work hard at maths and want to improve their knowledge and understanding. We recognize that mathematics is an important subject – essential to everyday life; critical to science, technology and engineering; and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment.

We provide a high-quality mathematics education, which provides a foundation for understanding the world; the ability to reason mathematically; an appreciation of the interconnectivity of mathematics; and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.

All children at Burhill will:

  • become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics;
  • reason mathematically;
  • be able to solve problems by applying their mathematics.                       (National Curriculum 2014)

The teaching of mathematics enables children to become efficient and confident mathematicians who can draw on a wide range of learned strategies to solve a variety of calculations and problems. Children will be able to think mathematically in different contexts, make links in their learning and rapidly and accurately apply previously learnt skills.
