Maths at Slindon

Maths is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment. Great Maths teaching 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.

At Slindon, we believe that discussion about Maths between talk partners and the ability to problem-solve, is as important as the completion of calculations. We want the children to see Maths as being relevant to their world and applicable to everyday life as well as being something that they will need as they move on through their school life and ultimately to the world of employment. A high-quality, inter-related and creative Maths experience should be one that develops the children’s ability to think mathematically and one which allows them to apply the tools to which they have been exposed in a variety of ways.
