Maths

At Pudsey Lowtown Primary School we aim to inspire all children to reach their full academic potential. In mathematics, this means ensuring a curriculum that is fully inclusive of all children which:

  • develops children’s knowledge and understanding of mathematical concepts whilst enabling them to practice and hone skills and methods;
  • enables them to think critically and communicate their understanding;
  • gives them opportunities to apply learnt mathematical skills in different contexts across the curriculum;
  • provides opportunities to develop problem-solving skills useful for maths and across the curriculum.

Our approach to this is to give children practical, hands-on experiences of using, comparing and calculating with numbers and quantities. We also recognise that the development of mental methods is of crucial importance in establishing the best mathematical start in the Early Years Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1.

This solid foundation allows pupils to:

  • be fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including the varied and regular practice of increasingly complex problems over time; 
  • reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, understanding relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language;
  • solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.
