Our Vision for Mathematics

At Christ the King Catholic Primary School we believe that mathematics equips pupils with a uniquely powerful set of tools, through developing an ability to calculate, reason and solve problems. It enables children to understand and appreciate relationships and patterns in both number and space in their everyday lives. Through their growing knowledge and understanding, they also learn to appreciate the contribution made by many people to the development and application of mathematics.

It is our aim to develop:

  • A growth mindset about ability to learn mathematics
  • A positive attitude towards mathematics and an awareness of how fascinating elements of mathematics can be
  • Competence and confidence with numbers and the number system and other mathematical knowledge, concepts and skills
  • Problem solvers, who can reason, think logically, work systematically and apply their knowledge of mathematics
  • An ability to communicate using mathematical language
  • An ability to work both independently and with others
