Maths Curriculum

Our Subject Leader for Maths is:  Miss H Roberts

Curriculum Statement

At Victoria Road Primary School, we see Maths as a vital component of children’s every day life and a skill they use throughout their whole life. Because of this, we make it a priority to equip them with the skills they need in order to tackle Maths in the everyday world. 


Intent: Throughout the teaching of Mathematics, we intend to provide every pupil with the opportunity to develop a comprehensive knowledge of all areas of the Primary National Curriculum Mathematics through high-quality, carefully-sequenced mathematics lessons.


We intend to provide children with an ambitious curriculum that enables them to make good progress and an awareness of how relevant Mathematics is to the real world. As a result, we aim to have children with lifelong skills that enable them to make effective contributions to the world around them.  We want to develop children who are curious Mathematicians, who love and enjoy Maths and because of this, are able to make connections, spot patterns and problem solve.


Maths at Victoria Road ensures that children:

·        become fluent in the fundamentals of Mathematics

·        are able to reason mathematically

·        can solve problems by applying their Mathematics



Implementation: We use Rising Stars scheme of work – alongside other high-quality resources – to help us implement our Mathematics curriculum: this is a carefully planned approach that has been mapped out so it is progressive and that children are revisiting their learning through a ‘spiral’ curriculum. Because of this, Maths skills are built upon over time and children are able to independently make connections.


We follow a mastery curriculum that ensures a deeper understanding of fluency, problem solving and reasoning skills. Throughout the sequence of lessons, teachers ensure that: skills are practiced through varied fluency; concepts are challenged through reasoning activities; and then learning is embedded through problem solving.


EYFS teachers use the NCETM ‘Mastering Number’ approach in order to secure firm foundations and ensure that children have good number sense. The aim is that children will be ready for their next stage and that they have automaticity in recall of number compositions.


In KS1, additional Number lessons are also taught using this NCETM ‘Mastering Number approach. The aim over time is that children will leave KS1 with fluency in calculation and confidence and flexibility with number. Additional arithmetic lessons take place in KS2 to secure and focus on basic number facts and fluency.

All children, regardless of ability, are supported and challenged in Mathematics lessons in order to achieve their best. In the case where children do not understand a concept, keep up interventions take place in order to secure their understanding. In addition to this, children in Years 4, 5 and 6 receive Third Space Learning intervention and National Tutoring sessions to address gaps in their learning.



Impact: Our aim is for children to have excellent outcomes and become independent mathematicians who have developed skills in Mathematics they need for adult life. They will have a secure understanding of number facts and be able to recall their learning with fluidity and automaticity, being able to make relationships and connections between the concepts they have been taught.

Children will be fluent in the fundamentals of Mathematics; be able to reason mathematically and explain confidently; and be problem solvers who apply their skills to a range of situations. In having these skills, children will display a positive and resilient attitude towards Mathematics.

Our assessment and monitoring shows that children at Victoria Road Primary School are well prepared for their next stages of learning and that when presented with new, unfamiliar situations can adapt and independently apply their learning to this situation.
