At All Saints we believe that mathematics is not just about doing pages of calculations and ploughing through textbooks.

It is about sharing ideas, solving problems, exploring and making connections within the fascinating web that is mathematics.

We want children to grow a love for mathematics and develop an understanding of its importance for them, both now and in the future.

In line with the national curriculum, our aims are that all pupils:

  • become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with 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.
  • can 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.





Times Tables

To enhance the children’s fluency with their times tables we subscribe to Times Tables Rockstars, which provides them with an opportunity for regular practice at home.

Implementation at All Saints

At All Saints, we follow a mastery approach to teaching mathematics. We use the DFE ready to progress guidance and the NCETM Curriculum prioritisation framework to sequence our curriculum. This is supported by Power Maths, which promotes depth of understanding through carefully designed questions to build upon pupil’s reasoning skills. Across our curriculum, the learning is broken down into small, manageable steps which supports progress for all pupils. Our expectation is that the majority of pupils will move through the learning at broadly the same pace.

We use the NCETM’s five big ideas of Coherence; Representation and Structure; Fluency; Variation and Mathematical Thinking to enable coherent learning progression throughout the curriculum. This involves careful choice of representations and exposing structures in lessons, including the use of concrete manipulatives where appropriate. At All Saints we promote mathematical thinking by making connections and looking for patterns and relationships, which pupils express through precise mathematical language.

We encourage pupils to develop a growth mindset when approaching mathematical problems, which enables them to persevere and achieve success. They evaluate their progress at the end of the lesson by drawing ‘the dip’.
