At Peterchurch Primary School we want every child to develop a deep understanding of mathematics. Maths is taught using a mastery approach, with all pupils moving broadly through the curriculum at the same pace.
Pupils are taught maths in year groups following age-appropriate programmes of study. New concepts are introduced using the 'concrete' approach (practical mathematical resources) whenever possible.
Our aim is that all pupils will become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics and are presented with increasingly complex problems over time. Once pupils attain conceptual understanding they offered regular opportunities to reason mathematically and solve problems.
