Mathematics at Edgebury



At Edgebury Primary School we believe that a quality Maths curriculum should equip children with a foundation for understanding number, reasoning and problem solving so that they are fully prepared for the future. It is essential that these keystones of Mathematics are embedded throughout all strands of the National Curriculum. By adopting a Mastery approach, it is also intended that all children, regardless of their starting point, will maximise their academic achievement and leave Edgebury with an appreciation and enthusiasm for Maths, resulting in a lifelong positive relationship with number.


Our Maths curriculum reflects our school values



We ensure that we deliver a high-quality maths curriculum that is both challenging and enjoyable.

We want children to make rich connections across mathematical ideas to develop fluency, mathematical reasoning and competence in solving increasingly sophisticated problems. Children work together, respecting each others ideas and learning together.

We encourage children to take opportunities to apply their mathematical knowledge to science and other subjects. We want them to know that maths is essential to everyday life and that our children are confident mathematicians who are not afraid to take risks.



At Edgebury, we follow the White Rose Maths Scheme of Work from Reception to Year 6. Each year is split into three terms (autumn, spring and summer), and each term comprises individual blocks of learning about a particular topic. We place a high value on the secure understanding of number and spend lots of time building strong number skills in Reception, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. These essential core skills lay a solid foundation for more complex learning later on. Number skills are revisited and rehearsed during early morning work, fluency sessions within maths lessons and through the use of Mathletics and Times Table Rockstars. Weekly home challenges set using Mathletics help children to secure and consolidate skills and retain learning.

We want children to feel that they can succeed in Maths and to develop a love of learning through their experiences of mathematics at primary school. Our mathematics lessons build fluency, problem solving and reasoning through sequences of carefully planned and resourced lessons. We use a range of concrete (practical apparatus such as cubes, counters etc) pictorial (diagrams and representations) and abstract (written, problem solving, application tasks) activities and resources to support children's learning.
