Mathematics is a creative and highly interconnected discipline that has been developed over centuries, providing the solution to some of history’s most intriguing problems. It is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment. A high-quality mathematics education therefore provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.’

(2014 Mathematics Curriculum - purpose of study)

At Joy Lane Foundation Primary School, pupils experience an all-round maths education, which ensures depth and breadth of understanding. This enables a strong emphasis on the child’s ability to reason mathematically.  Particular attention is paid to a range of practical experience and real life situations which develops confidence to tackle problems using a range of approaches.

Fundamentally, we aim to develop a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject through the application of knowledge to a broad range of experiences.

The relationship between home and school is vital to the development of this aim.  We encourage parents to support their children through the learning of times tables and number bonds, and exposing their children to real life learning situations such as money, telling the time and weighing amounts.
