Mathematics teaches our children how to make sense of the world around them through developing their ability to calculate fluently, reason and solve problems. It helps children to understand relationships and patterns in both number and space in the world around them.

Through their growing knowledge and understanding, children learn to appreciate the development and application of mathematics. It is essential to everyday life; critical to science, technology and engineering; and necessary for financial literacy and in most forms of employment.

At Mountbatten we follow a Maths mastery approach. We reinforce an expectation that all pupils are capable of achieving high standards in mathematics with the vast majority of pupils making progress through the curriculum content at the same pace.  Differentiation is achieved by emphasising deep knowledge through questioning, individual support and intervention.

Teaching is underpinned by methodical curriculum design and supported by carefully crafted lessons and resources to foster deep understanding.
