At Indian Queens School, the teaching and learning of mathematics is a high priority as we recognise it as an essential skill for life. Our children are taught through a mastery curriculum, the three main areas of the National Curriculum:
- Problem Solving
We ensure that all of our children develop a deep and sustainable understanding of mathematical concepts through a maths curriculum which promotes a rich understanding of mathematical concepts taught in small steps in a systematic way. The planning of maths across the school follows the White Rose Maths curriculum overview.
Following the introduction of the Mathematical Guidance for Key Stage One and Two, we have adapted the long term plans to ensure that children are prepared and ready to progress in their mathematical understanding for their appropriate age and year group.
The school calculation policy demonstrates the way in which mathematics is taught across the school so that children gain a deeper understanding of the subject. The policy is in line with the White Rose schemes of work to ensure consistent imagery and resource use throughout the school.
