The school follows the National Curriculum for mathematics.
The national curriculum for mathematics aims to ensure that all pupils:
- become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately.
- reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language
- can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.
Mathematics – WHOLE SCHOOL OVERVIEW – Programmes of Study, linked to the National Curriculum
At North Park Primary School we use the White Rose Maths Hub planning as our core planning scheme. These plans place great emphasis on progressive development of key skills , alongside the need to build fluency, reasoning and the ability to apply skills.
