Mathematics

At St. Luke’s Catholic Primary we offer all of the children the opportunity to become fluent mathematicians, who have frequent opportunities to master their learning through both the maths curriculum and the wider curriculum offer, including the use of creative contexts for learning.

We deliver a mastery curriculum to all pupils, which allows children (of all abilities) to develop a deep knowledge of mathematical skills and to apply these within a variety of contexts. This is achieved through precision curriculum planning and lesson design.

The National Curriculum outlines the expectation that all pupils will:

  • Become FLUENT in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately.
  • REASON MATHEMATICALLY by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language.
  • SOLVE PROBLEMS by increasing their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.
