Our School Vision for Mathematics


A high-quality mathematics education 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. (National Curriculum 2014)


At St Paul’s all our children are given the opportunity to develop their mathematical potential through a rich, engaging curriculum. We want our children to feel confident in using and applying mathematics in a wide range of situations.

We believe that mathematics is uniquely powerful in helping us to make sense of, and describe our world and in enabling us to solve problems. It is a fascinating subject, dealing with the nature of number, space, pattern and relationships. Useful and creative, it requires not only facts and skills, but also understanding gained through exploration, application and discussion.

In mathematics we aim to develop lively, enquiring minds encouraging pupils to become self motivated, confident and capable in order to solve problems that will become an integral part of their future. We hope that all our children will use a growth mindset to grow and nurture a love of mathematics.


Maths Evening for Parents

Look at all of the fantastic maths learning we do across school!
The Reception class focus on mastery of a particular number before they move on to the next one. They experience all the different ways the number can be seen or represented.

The children learn by watching the BBC Number Blocks programmes. They love the songs and the stories.
