Here at St John’s we aim to foster children’s mathematical understanding and help all children to develop a confident, skilled and resilient approach to all aspects of mathematics. By offering flexible groupings, providing engaging activities and an environment that embraces mistakes as opportunities for further learning, we enable children to succeed as mathematicians.
Through the teaching of key mathematics skills, we enable our children to:
Be fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics
Reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry
Solve problems by applying their mathematical understanding and knowledge
Working closely alongside the Salop and Herefordshire Maths Hub, we adopt a ‘Mastery’ approach to mathematics, which enables pupils to employ approaches that help pupils to develop a deep and secure knowledge and understanding of mathematics at each stage of their learning. We use the ‘White Rose Maths’ planning scheme in order to carry out this style of teaching.
