 At St Mawes, the teaching and learning of mathematics is a high priority as we recognise it as an essential skill for life. The aims of mathematics for all pupils are to:  


  • become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so pupils develop an understanding of different concepts, the ability to recall these and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately 

  • reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, developing an argument with justification or proof using mathematical language 

  • 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 steps and persevering in seeking solutions  


This is done through a Mastery Curriculum, ensuring that all of our children develop a deep and sustainable understanding of mathematical concepts promoting a rich understanding of mathematical concepts, taught in small steps in a systematic way.  

We strive to offer a Maths curriculum which is consistent and progressive. We continuously look at ways in which we can enhance the teaching and learning of mathematics within our school. All teachers are passionate about the teaching of mathematics, and strive to ensure context of mathematics is firmly embedded in the immersive learning experiences for all children.  

Please see below our calculation policy which will show you the different strategies and methods we use in school. This will help you to support your child’s learning at home and consolidate the work they have done in school.
