The national curriculum for mathematics aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately.
  • reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language
  • can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.



Purpose of study

Mathematics is a creative and highly inter-connected discipline that has been developed over centuries, providing the solution to some of history’s most intriguing problems. It is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment. A high-quality mathematics education therefore provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.


Each week children have five lessons of maths, which include:


- Arithmetic practice

- Multiplication Practice

- Problem solving activities

- Reasoning questions

- Mastery channeled questioning

- Differentiated challenges

Self and peer assessments








At Northfield Manor Primary Academy we cover the National Curriculum by creating medium term plans for each year group.

Calculation policy:

This explains the methods used at school to teach the core skills mentally and written.


Times Table Policy:

This identifies the ages at which children are expected to know their times tables in order to access the rest of the mathematics curriculum. 

At school we hold inspire workshops and develop strong links with the parents. We encourage learning to continue at home.
