At Welholme, our maths  has at its core the following seven key principles:

·        To inspire enjoyment of maths

·        To assist in developing children’s conceptual understanding of maths

·        To help raise levels of attainment for every child

·        To provide a rigorous and cohesive scope and sequence of the primary maths curriculum, while at the same time allowing for schools’ own curriculum design

·        To promote the most effective pedagogical methods in the teaching of mathematics

·        To offer manageable strategies for effective diagnostic, formative and summative assessment, to inform planning 
and teaching

·        To strengthen the home/school link.
