Mathematics at Stratford-upon-Avon Primary

At Stratford-Upon-Avon Primary School, we use a mastery approach to teaching maths in order to embed a culture of deep understanding, confidence and competence in this subject, with the aim of shaping assured, happy and resilient mathematicians. The Stratford-upon-Avon Primary mathematics curriculum follows the requirements of the national curriculum, using the White Rose Schemes of Learning to map out the progression of the teaching blocks for each year group. Each block is then broken down into carefully planned small steps to develop and deepen the children's understanding of the topic. These steps provide all children with experience of mathematical fluency, reasoning and problem solving. 
 
 
Here are the Yearly Overviews for Year 1 to Year 6.
Guides and Information
 
Below you will find the Calculation Policy, which outlines how we teach children to calculate and demonstrates the use of the 'Concrete-Pictorial-Abstract' approach to teaching calculations. There is also the Guidance document, which provides a picture of the progression in calculations across the school.
