Mathematics Curriculum Intent: Our Mathematics teaching is underpinned by the belief that all children need a deep understanding of the mathematics they are learning. We intend for all pupils at Romiley Primary to develop a sound understanding of Mathematics, equipping them with the skills of problem-solving, reasoning and fluency that they need in life beyond school.

At Romiley Primary, we believe that all children can, and will, succeed in mathematics. Mathematics teaches us how to make sense of the world around us through developing a child’s ability to calculate, to reason and to solve problems. Mathematicians are able to reason, explain, work systematically and apply their mathematical knowledge to a range of situations and problems. It enables children to understand and appreciate relationships and patterns in both number and space in their everyday lives.

We encourage pupils to have a positive attitude to maths and we work hard to ensure they develop strong mathematical skills and knowledge. We develop a culture where children persevere and are resilient when they are faced with challenging mathematical concepts. We believe all children can achieve in mathematics, and teach for secure and deep understanding of mathematical concepts through manageable steps.

At Romiley Primary, we follow a mastery approach for the teaching of Mathematics to develop children’s understanding and reasoning on a deeper level. Through our involvement with the North West Maths Hub, senior leaders and teachers have worked together, using White Rose Hub resources, to create a bespoke, carefully sequenced, lesson design to ensure a consistent learning journey throughout school. Children are taught through whole-class interactive teaching, where the focus is on all children working together on the same lesson content whilst at the same time, challenging and supporting pupils to gain depth of understanding and proficiency.
