At Wembley Primary School, we want every child to achieve their best by offering a sequential, structured, challenging and fun curriculum. We want our children to leave with fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills, which will help them in real life situations.
Our curriculum is designed to develop resilience and independence so that our children are prepared for the next stage of their education.
It aims to ensure that every child should have:
Our curriculum, from Early Years to Year 6, ensures coverage of the different areas of maths with number at the heart of it. Objectives set out in the National Curriculum are covered through following the White Rose Scheme. During maths lessons, pupils are given opportunities to work collaboratively and independently. Teachers and pupils engage in quality maths talk, which develops mathematical language, deepens learning and enables teachers to address misconceptions quickly and effectively. The needs of our pupils inform our lessons and each child’s needs are catered for. Teachers adapt their teaching and scaffold for those children who need support; this enables them to access the national expectations for their year group. Through the use of concrete resources and pictorial representations all children are supported to enable them to work abstractly.
Teachers have access to a range of resources to support subject knowledge, planning and assessment of the maths curriculum.
We want our children to see mathematics as a subject which runs through the other areas of the curriculum. Parents engage with their child’s mathematical learning through workshops, home learning tasks and class visits. By the time the children leave Wembley Primary, they will see the significance and purpose of mathematics in their everyday lives.
Assessment for learning is embedded across the school to assess what the children have learnt. Pupils regularly use retrieval practice to help guide their teachers into designing tasks to meet the needs of all children. Pupils complete summative assessments, which are appropriate for the children's age. These inform teachers, parents and pupils on their outcomes and prepare the children for the end of Key Stage SATs tests.
