At St James Church School we aim to develop children as confident mathematicians who have the ability to apply their learning in context.
As a school we have chosen to follow the White Rose Maths Hub Schemes of Learning. We use the long term overviews to guide our planning process and always adapt our planning to suit the needs of the learners in the class.
To ensure the children's understanding of key mathematical concepts is fully developed and supported we follow a concrete, pictorial, abstract approach to our Calculation Policy. We also recognise the importance of children developing strong mental maths skills and they are supported in this through our Whole School Times Table Challenge, arithmetic tests and challenges.
