Curriculum Statement


At Tillingbourne, children are given the opportunity to understand and explore a range of methods to build on and improve their understanding of maths as a whole. Through the use of the progression document, children will be taught, revise and embed a range of methods and strategies which develop their fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills. Children are able to apply and develop mathematical concepts in a range of subjects. For example: data handling in Science/History/Geography and 3D structures in Art/DT.



Maths lessons incorporate a range of retrieval and fluency activities. A range of problem solving and reasoning skills are explicitly modelled and practiced. These provide children with the skills to select appropriately from their mathematical toolkit

The use of a range of visual representations and concrete resources ensures abstract concepts are well understood. The revisiting of core knowledge and skills are carefully mapped out to ensure learning is embedded and links across maths are in place. Teachers will use formative and summative assessment systematically. Identified gaps are addressed through adaptive planning, first quality teaching and targeted interventions. Careful scaffolding ensures children of all abilities are appropriately challenged.



Children are confident mathematicians who have strong reasoning and problem solving skills which they can apply to multiple disciplines and topics. Outcomes for all children are strong in maths.
