At St Francis, we strive to offer the best provision and teaching of Mathematics that we can for our pupils.
Our ultimate aim is that all pupils will leave St Francis as children who enjoy Mathematics. We work to provide them with a secure foundation in Mathematics that can be successfully built on in Secondary school.
Mathematics is a tool for everyday life. It is a whole network of concepts and relationships which provide a way of viewing and making sense of the world. It is used to analyse and communicate information and ideas and to tackle a range of practical tasks and real life problems. It also provides the materials and means for creating new imaginative worlds to explore.
At St Francis, we believe that all children can achieve in Mathematics. We believe that it is vital that the curriculum is delivered in such a way that all children are included, stimulated and encouraged to achieve their full potential.
We use a scheme called Big Maths across school which tests a wide range of mathematical skills and knowledge each day. A sample of the tests from Years 1 to 6 can be found below:
