At Co-op Academy Broadhurst, we strive to prepare children for high school and beyond by giving them a broad and balanced curriculum which is underpinned by reasoning and problem solving. We endeavour to make maths learning accessible, creative, practical and relevant, while also fostering enthusiasm and fascination. Our ambition is for every child to develop a secure and deep understanding of the fundamental concepts and procedures of maths which they can use throughout their lives. 

Teachers deliver a comprehensive curriculum that implements the aims of the curriculum – fluency, reasoning and problem solving. Maths is mainly taught discreetly using the National Curriculum objectives. In Early Years, we follow the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage, 2021, and the Early Learning Goals. KS1 and KS2 follow the White Rose Maths long term and medium term plans to ensure progression through the themes and areas of maths as well as provide a varied curriculum. At Co-op Academy Broadhurst, we believe that the children should take smaller steps through learning (and not rush through content) because it will lead to deeper understanding of mathematical concepts, as children are given the time to internalise their maths learning.

As communication is fundamental, we will provide many opportunities for the children to develop their competency in this skill, encouraging them to communicate, justify, argue and prove using mathematical vocabulary.

Ultimately, we want our children to understand that maths is more than just numbers and getting the correct answers. It is important in everyday life, many forms of employment, science and technology, medicine, the economy, the environment and development and in public decision-making. Mathematics equips pupils with a uniquely powerful set of tools to understand and change the world.
