Southfield Primary School

Mathematics

Mathematical understanding is one of the key pillars of our school curriculum and we place high emphasis on building a solid foundation to our pupil’s mathematical learning. We seek to equip pupils with a fluency in the subject by developing a core understanding of the basic Four Number operations and showing our pupils how to exploit this knowledge in order to calculate quickly and effectively.

Our teachers provide pupils with the skills needed to reason mathematically and provide justifications for their thinking by creating engaging, stimulating lessons which result in positive experiences for all children, fostering a love and passion for the subject.

At Southfield, we aim to provide our children with a range of stimulating activities in daily lessons which equip them with the ability to solve problems and apply their mathematical knowledge to a variety of questions, effectively deconstructing them into a series of simpler steps and persevering when seeking solutions.
