Mathematics Curriculum 

We aim to provide a high quality mathematics education for our children which aims to ensure that all pupils: 

  • become fluent in the fundamentals of maths through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately
  • reason mathematically by following a line or enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language
  • can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.


At Welbourn C of E Primary School we follow the National Curiculum (2014) for mathematicsw, which can be viewed by clicking on the link below.
