At Snape Wood Primary School, we believe that mathematics is an important life skill. Our mathematics curriculum offers a broad range of experiences designed to provide pupils with the mathematical understanding, skills and knowledge needed to deal with everyday situations, learning in other areas of the curriculum and investigations within mathematics itself. We believe that the language of maths is international and the subject transcends cultural boundaries. Therefore, we aim to provide children with opportunities in maths that will broaden their horizons and set them up for the future.

Our aims are:

  • To give children the knowledge, understanding, resilience and problem solving skills that help them interpret the world around them
  • To support children to have a well-developed number sense, particularly in the early years
  • To support children to become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics through varied and frequent practice with complexity increasing over time
  • To develop children’s ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly
  • In an increasingly fast-changing world, to develop children’s understanding of the importance of maths and its relevance in everyday life
  • To develop children’s money-sense in order to use money in everyday life
