Learning Together, Learning Forever
At Hazel Grove Primary School, we strongly believe that it is our responsibility to prepare our pupils with the mathematical knowledge, skills and attitudes that will help them become successful, happy and confident mathematicians – preparing them for the world they know and the world yet to be discovered. We aim to inspire our pupils so that they believe that they can achieve in maths.
At Hazel Grove Primary School, we believe everyone can achieve in maths. Our intent for mathematics is to ensure that we teach a progressive curriculum that allows children to make sense of the world around them by making connections between mathematics and everyday life. We ensure that the aims of the national curriculum for mathematics (set out below) are fundamental drivers for HGPS Maths Curriculum so that all pupils:
• Become 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.
• Can 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.
We also aim to ensure that mathematics is a high-profile subject which our children view positively and with a ‘Growth Mindset’.
We have high expectations of all our pupils and our personalised maths curriculum strongly reflects our understanding of mastery. At HGPS, achieving mastery means:
