Mathematics introduces children to concepts, skills and thinking strategies that are essential in everyday life and supports learning across the curriculum. It helps children make sense of the numbers, patterns and shapes they see in the world around them; offers ways of handling data in an increasingly digital world and makes a crucial contribution to their development as successful learners.
At Middlestown Primary Academy, mathematics equips pupils with the uniquely powerful set of tools to understand and change the world. We believe that Mathematics is integral to all aspects of life and we aim to ensure that children develop a positive and enthusiastic attitude in Mathematics that will stay with them throughout their lives.
A positive attitude towards Mathematics is instilled within all of our pupils in order to foster confidence and achievement in a skill that is essential in our society. Through our creative approach to teaching and learning, we also seek to explore and utilise further opportunities to use and apply Mathematics across all subject areas so when our pupils leave Middlestown, they are individuals who are numerate, creative, independent, inquisitive, enquiring and confident learners.
