At St Mary’s, we firmly believe in providing our children with life-long mathematical skills; skills that they will need for their everyday lives. We aim to provide our children with the ability to transfer these skills and relate them to real-life problem solving. All staff are willing to promote mathematics across the curriculum to enable our pupils to leave St Mary’s with a belief and confidence that they truly are fluent mathematicians and that it isn’t a ‘scary’ subject. Children will develop a range of skills alongside numerical skills such as: independence, perseverance and curiosity all of which are key skills for life.
