Curriculum Design

Our Mathematics curriculum is designed using a ‘spiral approach’, where learners revisit mathematical aspects throughout the year, each time making connections and deepening their understanding. Composites (end points) have been coherently planned and sequenced, ensuring pupils have the necessary components to succeed. Learning is underpinned with crucial knowledge that is sequenced to promote progress and enable pupils to transition smoothly between year groups, preparing them with the knowledge and core concepts required for their next stage of learning.

We want all of our pupils to develop a love and enthusiasm for Mathematics and to make rich connections across mathematical ideas to develop fluency, mathematical reasoning and competence in solving increasingly sophisticated problems. Our mathematical curriculum content focuses on:

  • Declarative knowledge: ‘I know that…’
  • Procedural knowledge: ‘I know how…’
  • Conditional knowledge: ‘I know when…’
