Mathematics at SouthfielD
At Southfield Junior School, we embrace the aims of the National Curriculum for mathematics which are to ensure that all pupils:
- Become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics,
- Reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry,
- Can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of problems
We follow a Mathematics Mastery approach (through the use of 'White Rose') to teaching and learning which ensures continuity and progression.
The expectation is that the majority of pupils will move through the programmes of study at broadly the same pace, however decisions about when to progress will always be based on the security of pupils understanding and their readiness to progress to the next stage. Pupils who grasp concepts rapidly will be challenged by being offered rich and sophisticated problems before any acceleration through new content. Those who are not sufficiently fluent with earlier material will consolidate their understanding including through additional practice, before moving on.
