‘Mathematics is, in its way, the poetry of logical ideas’ – Albert Einstein
At Low Ash Primary School, we aim that every pupil will be provided with the tools to develop into confident and successful mathematicians who have a thorough knowledge and understanding of the fundamentals of mathematics and can apply these independently in reasoning and problem solving including across the curriculum.
We aim for our pupils to gain:
- Procedural fluency: knowing how to do mathematics
- Conceptual fluency: knowing why mathematics works
They can then build on this firm foundation to reason and solve problems.
At Low Ash we aim to dispel the myth that mathematics is an inherent skill known only to a few. We believe our curriculum facilitates every pupil, regardless of ability, to enjoy mathematics, appreciate the magic of mathematics and feel empowered to succeed.
At Low Ash Primary we have adopted a mastery approach to the teaching of mathematics having worked successfully for a number of years with the West Yorkshire Maths Hub.
