At Freeman Community Primary School it is our intent that children are confident and resilient mathematicians who are able to function mathematically in the world around them. We work to ensure our children are fluent within all areas of mathematics, use their knowledge to reason mathematically and solve problems across the mathematics curriculum. To make this possible, we ensure our children understand links and connection between mathematical concepts and have high expectations of all that they do. By the time they leave our school, we equip them with the skills and strategies to enable them in the next stage of their education and beyond.

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 nonroutine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.
