Maths is taught everyday. During these lessons they learn new skills and knowledge. Subsequently teachers look to find opportunities, both within these lessons and in other areas of learning, to apply the knowledge and skills they have learnt to ‘real life’ contexts. So, for example, they will learn how to record information in charts and graphs during their scientific enquiry work. We believe that it is crucially important for children to understand the relevance of mathematics to their lives.

At St. Andrew's we use the White Rose scheme for our maths coverage. We teach Fluency Fridays in KS2 to embed the calculation skills we have learnt in Autumn through out the rest of the year.

To support children and parents to understand the calculation methods used in school we have created a child-friendly calculation policy. Please see below the calculation methods for KS2 and the full school calculation policy.
