Maths- Intent



At St Richard’s we aim to create a curiosity in our children, through our creative and rich maths curriculum, enabling them to become competent and independent mathematicians.  Mathematics is an essential part of a balanced curriculum and we follow a 'mastery approach' to teaching mathematics; an inclusive method based on our firm belief  that all our children can achieve.


We intend for all children to build a deeper understanding of mathematical concepts, which provides a strong foundation for the fundamental skills needed to solve the problems found in everyday life. Mathematics is taught through three key areas of mastery; varied fluency, mathematical reasoning and problem solving. In doing so we aim for our children to build resilience, develop a greater sense of number, confidently articulate their thinking and connect maths to the real world.
