At Darras Hall Primary School, we adopt a mastery approach to mathematical development to ensure that children are successful and resilient mathematicians. We encourage independent, reflective thinkers who deepen their understanding of concepts through the use of concrete, pictorial and abstract methods. Children employ fluency in mathematical calculation and apply this through varied problem solving and reasoning opportunities. Our curriculum is designed to promote a love of maths by encouraging all children to explore, investigate and use practical resources both independently and with their peers.
