Elm Tree Community Primary School provides a broad and varied Mathematics curriculum, through a variety of teaching approaches and learning situations, to meet the needs of all our pupils.  At Elm Tree, we are committed to developing the pupils’ all-round approach to Maths using varied methods and cross-curricular input.

  • A positive attitude towards mathematics

  • Competence and confidence in mathematical knowledge, concepts and skills

  • An ability to solve problems, reason, think logically and to work systematically and accurately

  • An initiative and an ability to work both independently and in cooperation with others

  • An ability to communicate clearly using mathematical terminology 

  • An ability to use and apply mathematics across the curriculum and in real life 

  • An understanding of mathematics through a process of enquiry and experiment 

  • to promote enjoyment of learning through practical activity, ICT, exploration and discussion

At Elm Tree our Maths scheme of work is White Rose Maths. The White Rose Maths scheme outlines yearly frameworks which covers all aspects of the National Curriculum. 

Our mission is to provide all our children with the same opportunity to learn with the support they need to fully grasp mathematical concepts. At the heart of the White Rose Maths scheme is the motto “Everyone can do Maths: Everyone can!” a vision that all at Elm Tree agree with. Through adopting both a CPA approach to learning and the Mastery Approach we are embedding a positive attitude towards Mathematics in all of our children and encouraging growth mindset.
