Mathematics Vision Statement 



National Curriculum 2014

Mathematics is a creative and highly inter-connected discipline that has been developed over centuries, providing the solution to some of history’s most intriguing problems. It is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment. A high-quality mathematics education therefore provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.


Highcliffe St Mark Primary School

At Highcliffe St Mark Primary School, we want to foster a sense of curiosity about mathematics. We have high aspirations for all our children and aim to build their resilience. Our aim is for all children to become fluent and flexible with their mathematical knowledge and skills, be confident communicators that can reason and engage in real life mathematical problem solving.  We understand that with practice and self-belief, if we work hard at maths we can all succeed.


There are a series of videos to help parents to understand how we teach maths skills and concepts in school. You can find these in the video centre on our website
