All are welcome here to walk with Jesus as we love, learn and flourish.

At St Mary’s we aim to equip all children with the knowledge, confidence, skills and passion to be able to be successful mathematicians wherever their life path takes them.

Statement of Intent

At St Mary’s we want to provide children with a creative Mathematics curriculum that envelops and celebrates the highly interconnected discipline that has been developed over centuries. We want children to understand the importance of mathematics and how this has helped to solve many of history’s fascinating problems.  We want children to understand the importance of mathematics in everyday life.

Mathematics at St Mary’s will ensure that children understand how critical mathematics is to the development of our world and future including technology, science and engineering along with financial literacy and their future careers and lives. Ensuring that a high-quality education in mathematics is provided for our children, will ensure a foundation for understanding how wonderful it is and how it impacts everything around us. Children will be encouraged and supported in being aware of mathematics in the world, in reasoning mathematically along with appreciated the beauty and power of mathematics. This will establish a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.

Maths Aims at St Mary's

We aim for all pupils to:

  • become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, through an assortment of and regular practice of increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately.
  • reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language.
  • to be able to solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.
