Maths at Trinity is viewed as a creative, highly inter-connected subject that is essential to everyday life.
We want all our children to experience the joy, beauty and power of maths to develop fluent recall and problem-solving skills.
Our curriculum will promote opportunities for oracy- cognitively, linguistically and socially.
We want our children to see themselves as mathematicians.
Teachers and subject leaders have strong subject knowledge and understanding of skills shared across the whole school.
Mathematical Pedagogy is clearly understood by staff to ensure long term concepts are embedded. This will be achieved by high quality C.P.D. , weekly learning walks, and exchange of good practice.
Children are given the opportunity to work individually, in peer groups and present to the class concepts they have been learning.
Teachers use live, daily planning assessment and feedback to systematically identify and address misconceptions before teaching the next steps.
Children can communicate mathematical understanding through high quality resources, drawing pictures, use of IT as well as recording in books.
The content of learning environments will be consistent in promoting maths but relevant to the age and stage the children are at.
Summative and formative assessments show achievement, progression and is aspirational across pupil groups.
Children are systematic in their approach to maths. They use a solid understanding of concepts to try and solve abstract and concrete problems.
Children can talk about their own understanding of maths confidently - (Verbal feedback, 1:1 conferencing and peer assessment).
Children see trial and error and risk as a necessary part of maths thinking. This is supported by our character education.
Children are ready for the next stage of their education.
