Intent:

Maths at Ashbourne Primary School develops competent, confident and creative mathematicians.

Our work is underpinned by our vision and aims: ‘Nurturing aspiration through happy, creative learning’. Our PRAISE aims are at the heart of every lesson and our focus on the removal of barriers to learning is firmly embedded into all areas of the maths curriculum.

At Ashbourne Primary School children are given the opportunity to experience maths in its rich variety. Children’s understanding is deepened by using practical equipment, a range of representations and models. The curriculum at APS promotes proficiency and fluency in arithmetic skills which gives children the confidence to apply their learning in reasoning and problem solving situations. Whilst at APS, children will have the opportunity to enjoy and demonstrate their maths learning outside lessons through mathematical challenges such as problem solving mornings and external competitions (the Primary Maths Challenge). Maths at APS encourages children to work both independently and collaboratively and to practice their skills across the curriculum.
