Maths Curriculum Intent Statement
Mathematics is a creative and highly inter-connected 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 our ever changing digital world. At St Day and Carharrack School, we strive to deliver high-quality mathematics education that provides a foundation for understanding and excelling in the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment, engagement and curiosity about the subject.
The national curriculum for mathematics aims to ensure that all pupils:
- become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including 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 of 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.

Teachers use a range of rich planning tools; including White Rose Maths and the NCTEM. This allows for the progression of skills to build over time which is evident across the school.
