Maths/Numeracy

The mathematics curriculum at St. Clare’s aims to provide children with the ability to solve increasingly sophisticated routine and non-routine problems with confidence and accuracy. 

We aim to develop a fascination and passion for mathematics, where children are challenged to select, apply and explain their mathematical reasoning. 

We believe it is important for children to be able to recall fundamental facts rapidly and use these within more complex mental and written calculations. We aim to provide opportunities for problem solving within other curriculum areas so that the children’s mathematics is purposeful and enjoyable. St. Clare’s mathematics curriculum follows the plans devised by Lancashire’s Mathematics Team and is in line with the requirements of the National Curriculum 2014. 

It is important for children to be able to recall fundamental facts rapidly and use these within more complex mental and written calculation.

It is sometimes necessary to adapt these plans to suit the needs, interests and abilities of our pupils so that each child progresses and enjoys success whilst experiencing the challenge, power and beauty of mathematics.
