Our curriculum content is underpinned by the core Catholic Christian values of the school in order to provide an challenging, enriching and relevant Mathematics curriculum designed to give all learners the opportunities, knowledge, understanding and cultural capital that they need to succeed and enrich their time in school.
Our curriculum aims to empower pupils
- To develop life skills, through reasoning, helping them to become fluent in the universal language of numbers and helping them to understand more clearly the role Mathematics will play in their future.
- To give pupils the confidence to use their mathematical abilities and skills in a variety of situations.
- To develop an approach towards problem solving.
- To nurture our pupils to become independent thinkers (learners) who enjoy a collaborative process in order to produce creative solutions in unfamiliar situations.
- To encourage pupils to develop mathematical behaviour and as such our curriculum encourages students to develop deeper understanding to make links across curriculum areas.
- To develop the mathematical knowledge of pupils by meeting the requirements of the national curriculum in mathematics.
- To ensure challenge is provided through depth in order to achieve mastery of the subject and encourage a deeper understanding and love of the subject.
