Maths Curriculum Overview


INTENT - Our Curriculum Intent

Our goal is for learners to think about maths beyond what is tested in national examinations, equipping them with an understanding of mathematics that is both relevant and useful for future studies and the world of work. As a school, we embrace maths through whole-school events such as Maths Week England, NSPCC Number Day, Enterprise Week, connections with HSBC Bank and termly at-home challenges, fostering a community-wide appreciation and enthusiasm for mathematics. Our aim is to develop a positive culture of deep understanding, confidence and competence in maths that produces strong, secure learning.

IMPLEMENTATION – How We Will Deliver Our Curriculum
At St Peter's Eaton Square, our maths curriculum aims to deliver thought-provoking and engaging lessons that instil a sense of curiosity and discovery in our children. We are committed to helping children become resilient mathematicians through ambitious lessons that connect mathematical concepts to other learning topics and areas. Beyond being in line with the National Curriculum, our lesson designs make rich connections across mathematical ideas to develop fluency, oracy, mathematical reasoning and competence in solving increasingly sophisticated problems.


IMPACT – How We Will Evaluate our Curriculum:
At St Peter's Eaton Square, children's increasing passion for mathematics is evident through their engagement and achievements within lessons, national testing, school-wide challenges, and online learning activities such as Numbots and Times Tables Rockstars. We celebrate their hard work and dedication during our celebration assemblies. Following the national curriculum, we use White Rose and supplementary maths mastery resources to support teachers in their planning and assessment. Each stream of learning is broken down into small, teachable steps, ensuring that children at all levels of learning feel successful. Throughout each topic, discussion is a key component, with children expected to explain their approach to various questions. This practice fosters a deeper understanding and provides valuable assessment opportunities. Independent learning in children's books incorporates a question followed by a related reasoning or problem-solving challenge, enabling all children to acquire, apply, and deepen their skills within a single lesson.
