Mathematics Intent Statement
Ensuring access to a rich, broad and balanced curriculum, based upon and framed by our school values of Respect, Determination, Friendship and Forgiveness, is at the heart of Crayke’s provision…
The fundamental aim of Crayke Church of England Primary School is to provide opportunities for children to develop as independent, confident, successful learners with high aspirations; creating citizens of the future who know how to make a positive contribution to their community and the wider society.
Being a Crayke Mathematician, supported by the 2014 National Curriculum for Maths aims to ensure that all children:
The intent of our mathematics curriculum is to be accessible to all and will maximise the development of every child’s ability and academic achievement. We deliver lessons that are creative, engaging and with appropriate challenge and support. We intend for our pupils to be able to apply their mathematical knowledge to science and other subjects, becoming confident mathematicians who know that maths is essential to everyday life.
Meeting National Curriculum requirements, we deliver a rich, broad and balanced curriculum. Crayke engages all learning styles using a variety of resources which support the teaching of the curriculum. The wider learning culture is promoted through our school values of ‘Determination, Respect, Friendship and Forgiveness’ and through a culture of our aspirational ‘Crayke Growth Mindset’.
Staff use the EYFS curriculum and the National Curriculum Age Related Expectations to devise a flexible and interesting, sequential series of lessons/activities based on pupil’s prior learning and next steps. We use a variety of resources across school to help deliver and support our curriculum rather than follow one specific scheme. We feel that a flexible and holistic approach to the teaching of mathematics creates the best mathematicians for the future and enables us, as practitioners, to make relevant changes where necessary to suit individual children and cohorts.
A range of resources are used across school such as:
Impact will be measured by assessing against the National Curriculum Age-Related Expectations statements through ‘Insight pupil tracking’ at termly intervals as:
Also, a standardised score from termly NFER tests will help inform the termly teacher judgements.
Pupils will sit statutory assessments in Mathematics at the end of KS1 and KS2. Pupils in Year 4 will sit the Multiplication Tables Check.
Crayke Mathematicians will be able to demonstrate the essential characteristics of Maths detailed in the Intent section above.
They will successfully be able to:
