At Stanburn Primary School, we strive to provide a high-quality mathematics education to enable children to reason mathematically, appreciate the beauty and power of mathematics, and develop a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.

We want all our students to: 

Maths at Stanburn follows the 2014 National Curriculum and is taught daily as a discrete subject. Additionally, teachers use every opportunity to develop pupils’ mathematical fluency and confidence in numeracy and other mathematical skills across the curriculum so that they understand and appreciate the importance of mathematics. We teach maths with a growth mindset in mind - creating a love of learning and resilience so that levels of thinking can become increasingly sophisticated. We challenge higher levels of thinking, through problem solving and questioning, to stimulate mathematical creativity.

Our pupils enjoy mathematics and are numerate, creative, independent, inquisitive, enquiring and confident. We provide adequate resources and a stimulating environment where all pupils are able to develop their mathematical skills to their full potential. In securing pupils’ enjoyment and achievement in mathematics, we endeavour at all times to set work that is challenging, motivating and encourages our pupils to reason, and to talk about what they have been learning.
