Through our implementation of the National Curriculum for Mathematics through our Highfield Progression Documents, we ensure that our children:
- Become fluent in the fundamentals of Mathematics
- Are able to reason mathematically
- Can solve problems by applying their Mathematics
At Highfield, these skills are embedded within Mathematics lessons and developed consistently over time. By ensuring that children embed their fluency skills before moving on to more complex mathematics we ensure that children have the confidence to tackle a variety of problems either independently or in collaboration with their peers. We ensure that our children are able to reflect and evaluate on the skills that they have used in order for them to take ownership and pride in their work.
We are committed to ensuring that children are able to recognise the importance of Mathematics in the wider world and that they are also able to use their mathematical skills and knowledge confidently in their lives in a range of different contexts. Children enjoy Mathematics and experience success in the subject, with the ability to reason mathematically. We develop children’s curiosity about the subject, as well as an appreciation of the beauty and power of Mathematics.
