Curriculum Intent Statement for Maths

Maths

At Porthleven, we believe that every pupil should leave school being numerate and equipped with the mathematical skills to thrive in later life. Our curriculum is rich in skills and knowledge, that take takes pupils on a journey to ensure that pupils have a sound understanding of the structure of mathematics and how this can be used to solve problems and challenges in different contexts.  Lessons weave calculation, reasoning and problem solving throughout, providing opportunities to make links with prior knowledge and challenge pupils’ understanding.

Our aspiration is for every child to see themselves as a mathematician – demonstrating a confident attitude towards tackling problems both in and out of the classroom and understanding the importance of maths in the wider world.
