Maths at Lingfield

Mathematics is a creative and highly inter-connected discipline that has been developed over centuries, providing the solution to some of history’s most intriguing problems. It is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment. A high-quality mathematics education therefore 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. (National Curriculum 2014).

Mathematics is not only an essential part of a balanced curriculum, but also a fundamental part of daily life. At Lingfield, we seek to promote a rich culture of Mathematics within our school which all children can access and thrive upon. We believe that all learners should become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, have the chance to build their understanding through reasoning mathematically, and learn to apply this understanding in problem solving situations. We encourage our children to develop a growth mindset, where mistakes are valued as an essential part of learning, so that children develop an enthusiastic and creative attitude towards mathematics that will stay with them throughout their lives.

Mastery is an ethos and an approach that leads to true understanding. It is therefore our belief that everyone can master maths and the term is never used as a descriptor for those classed as ‘more able’ mathematicians. We are currently working towards a curriculum that is reflective of mastery in mathematics and staff are undertaking CPD both within and outside of school, with staff meeting time allocated to discuss and reflect on our developing mastery curriculum. We have made progress with our journey and are committed to giving each aspect of mastery sufficient time to embed, in order to ensure that what is implemented is maintained and has the desired impact.
