At The Mosley Academy we believe that Maths equips pupils with the uniquely powerful set of tools to understand and change the world. These tools include number fluency (including times tables), logical reasoning, problem solving skills and the ability to think in abstract ways.
Mathematics is important in everyday life. It is integral to all aspects of life and with this in mind we endeavour to ensure that children develop a positive and enthusiastic attitude towards mathematics.
The National Curriculum for mathematics describes in detail what pupils must learn in each year group. It is vital that a positive attitude towards mathematics is encouraged amongst all of our pupils in order to foster confidence and achievement in a skill that is essential in our society.
At The Mosley Academy we use the National Curriculum for Mathematics (2014) as the basis of our mathematics programme, and we use White Rose Maths as a spine for our Maths lesson planning. The Times Table Rockstars platform is also used to raise the profile of times tables and enhance learning both in school and at home.
We are committed to ensuring that all pupils achieve mastery in the key concepts of mathematics, appropriate for their age group, in order that they make genuine progress and avoid gaps in their understanding that provide barriers to learning as they move through education.
