Sandhills Community Primary School follows the National Curriculum for Mathematics.  In line with this, we aim to ensure that all pupils:

  • become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics,
  • can reason mathematically
  • can solve problems

The school follows the White Rose scheme of work and all children have a wide range of resources available to support their learning. We believe that mathematics equips pupils with a 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.

Children at Sandhills School are supported 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 solving skills including reasoning, thinking logically, working systematically and applying knowledge of mathematics
  • An ability to communicate using mathematical language
  • An ability to work both independently and with others
