Mathematics Curriculum

Our core curriculum aims and principles for Mathematics are as followed:

  • A balanced curriculum
  • Content is rigorous and challenging
  • There is coherence and relevance
  • Knowledge rich and values vocabulary

To support these aims and principals, we utilise and embed the ‘Five Strands of Mathematic Proficiency’. These strands and more information can be seen below:
