The maths department aim to promote a fascination and enjoyment of mathematics for all pupils, whatever their level of ability. This will be developed at the same time as developing each pupil’s ability to communicate using mathematics, with a strong emphasis on the use of correct mathematical language, notation and graphical representations or diagrams. We also wish to equip pupils with a series of tools to solve problems in everyday life and to raise an awareness of the use of Mathematics both across the curriculum and in everyday life.
DEEP Curriculum Overview
Through our DEEP curriculum, all pupils will learn to become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics through varied and frequent practice of increasingly complex problems over time. To develop an ability to think and reason mathematically. They will solve problems by applying 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. Through their 5-year journey, pupils will realise the application of Mathematics in the world around us, allowing them to develop a firm foundation for appropriate further study
