Mathematics is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment. At Braintcroft E-Act Primary academy, we aim to provide a high-quality mathematics education which will provide a foundation for understanding the world, to develop an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject. Our pupils will leave our school as confident, resilient mathematicians, demonstrating conceptual and procedural fluency, with the ability to reason mathematically and efficiently solve problems. Our Maths curriculum aims to ensure that all children:  

  • become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, develop a conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately. This is achieved through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems  
  • reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language 
  • can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions. 

At Braintcroft we use Effective Maths as a comprehensive framework for ensuring high quality maths teaching. These lessons are carefully designed to enable children to understand key concepts and make connections within mathematics. Co-operative learning is integral to the programme and is a core part of every lesson.
