Our aim at Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Primary School is for all children to enjoy Mathematics and have a secure and deep understanding of fundamental mathematical concepts and procedures when they leave us to go to secondary school.
We want children to see the mathematics that surrounds them every day and enjoy developing vital life skills in this subject.
Aims for our pupils:
Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Primary School has begun transitioning towards a mastery approach to the teaching and learning of mathematics. The rationale behind changing our approach to teaching mathematics lay within the NCETM Maths Hub Programme as well as the 2014 National Curriculum, which states:
At Our Lady of Fatima we follow the small-step approach to Mathematics to properly embed the knowledge and understanding that the children will need in their lives. Below you will find the White Rose Scheme of Work that we follow.
