Vision Statement for Mathematics
Mathematics is a creative and highly interconnected discipline that has been developed over centuries, providing the solution to some of history’s most intriguing problems. It is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment. A high-quality mathematics education therefore provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.
National Curriculum 2014
At Tipton Green Junior School, we have adopted the mastery approach to teaching and learning in mathematics. Mastery involves a deeper understanding of mathematics and how it works. It means being able to use and apply mathematics knowledge to new and unfamiliar situations. To support children in achieving this, we follow the White Rose approach, using their scheme of work and resources. The scheme is used to both support and challenge children’s understanding, in line with the higher expectations of the National Curriculum. We expect most children to move through this programme of study at broadly the same pace. Teachers will make decisions on when to progress based on the security of children’s understanding and their readiness to progress to the next stage. Children who grasp concepts rapidly will be challenged through being offered rich and sophisticated problems before any acceleration through new content. Those who are not sufficiently fluent with earlier concepts will consolidate their understanding through additional practise and support before moving on.
At Tipton Green, we want children to become fluent mathematicians who can problem solve and reason confidently. We aim:
