Maths

The Maths Curriculum is delivered using the National Curriculum 2014 and the Early learning Goals are followed to ensure continuity and progression from the Foundation Stage through to the National Curriculum.

Maths is taught in five strands: Data Handling, Shape Space and Measure, Number, Calculation and Using and Applying.

At Haughton St Giles Academy we provide a daily maths session that seeks to reinforce previous learning and allow children to take on new skills and apply these in a range of contexts. Children are often grouped according to ability which allows teachers to target individual needs.

At Haughton St Giles Academy we feel that mental maths skills are key to allowing children to access the more complex calculation and number objectives set out in the National Curriculum This involves a dedicated session daily in each classroom from Y1-6.

Continuity and progression

A yearly overview is created by all teachers for maths, English and the foundation subjects; this ensures continuity and progression throughout the school.
Each teacher has time allocated to discuss each pupil’s attainment and progress with their existing teacher at the end of the term before pupils move class.
