Mathematics is dynamic and creative subject that is essential to everyday life, science / technology and most forms of employment.

A high-quality mathematics education therefore provides a foundation for understanding the world

Mathematic Programme of Study 2013 (D of E)

Our Aims at Parnwell...

Within our teaching of mathematics we try and create pupils'  sense of enjoyment and curiosity for the subject

As a school we aim to ensure that all pupils:

  • become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics,
  • reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry and develop justification or proof using mathematical language
  • can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems. 

To ensure children master a robust understanding and secure foundation in maths we use the Abacus scheme as a starting point. This scheme follows a “four pillar” approach:

  • Children need to have an appreciation of our number system and strong grasp of place value
  • Children need a really good bank of number facts
  • Children need an exposure to consistent and developmental models and images
  • Children need a comprehension of the key mathematical functions based on doubling and halving.

In addition, we use Kangaroo maths to enhance our provision so that children have a wide range of opportunities for problem solving and reasoning. These curriculum materials help teachers recognise possible misconceptions and provide resources and ideas to help children achieve mastery in the different aspects of mathematics.

In addition, children are supported and encouraged to develop mental maths skills through daily programmes and precision teaching. Intervention programmes such as Numicon are used when appropriate.
