- Our children leave school as numerate children equipped with the ability to persevere, take on challenges and communicate mathematically.
- Pupils are prepared for real life and are used to using mathematics across a range of situations and subjects.
- Daily mental practise allows pupils to become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics.
- Children are regularly presented with problem solving activities which challenge their thinking and allow them to use and apply their skills.
- The children use and hear accurate and appropriate mathematical language in a range of situations.
