Our work in mathematics follows the National Curriculum guidelines for Key Stages two and three, using a variety of approaches, including class topics, small group work and individual programmes of study.  At the end of KS2 our year six children follow the curriculum prescribed by the National Numeracy Strategy.  The emphasis is placed on mental number work during a daily mathematics lesson.


Our years seven and eight pupils build on this groundwork and follow a scheme, which combines traditional and modern methods, with the emphasis on understanding and the ability to apply ideas, instead of simply learning rules.  We constantly practise basic numeracy, measurement and money, using oral and written methods and class discussions of efficient ways to solve problems.  We also learn to think clearly and logically and to apply the ideas encountered in a variety of situations, both in and outside the classroom.
