At St Joseph’s we want every child to develop a love of maths.
We aim to enable a child to develop an enthusiastic, confident attitude towards maths, that will stay with them throughout their lives.
At St Joseph’s, we view Mathematics as a tool for everyday life; a network of concepts and relationships which provide a way of viewing and making sense of the world, central importance for everyday life. The intent of our mathematics curriculum is to create and foster a positive attitude to the learning of mathematics and to help children enjoy maths activities throughout their time with us at St Joseph’s, through creative and engaging lessons. We strive for the best for our children and we are continually committed to raising standards. We want our all our children to be able to access our curriculum and maximise their mathematical development regardless of their starting points and backgrounds.
Our intention is that our children see links with maths in everyday life and become life-long, resilient problem solvers who can apply their mathematical knowledge to science and other subjects.
