The language of mathematics is international. The basic skills of mathematics are vital for the life opportunities of our children. Our aim is for all children to think mathematically, enabling them to reason, solve problems and assess risk in a range of contexts.

From Nursery to Year 6, we teach Math using White Rose Maths schemes of learning which are designed to support a mastery approach to teaching and learning, as well as to support the aims and objectives within the National Curriculum. 

At Elmridge Primary School, our Mathematics Mastery curriculum has been developed to ensure every child can:

  • Understand the importance of developing mathematical skills in readiness for their next stage of education and to prepare them for future opportunities and responsibilities of life,
  • develop confidence whilst building resilience to be successful, independent and motivated learners,
  • achieve excellence in mathematics,
  • experience a sense of awe and wonder as they solve a problem for the first time,
  • display a deeper understanding through a concrete, pictorial and abstract approach,
  • develop essential life skills and understand the impact mathematics has on the wider world,

Mathematics Mastery places emphasis on the cumulative mastery of essential knowledge and skills in mathematics. It embeds a deeper understanding of maths by utilising a concrete, pictorial, abstract approach so that pupils understand what they are doing rather than just learning to repeat routines without grasping what is happening.
