Maths Intent

At Lark Rise Academy, we aim to equip children with mathematical knowledge, skills and  understanding that will enable them to enjoy and use these skills throughout their time in our school and beyond. We challenge pupils to talk, think and solve problems; developing a sense of curiosity about the subject with a clear understanding.

The teaching of mathematics follows a clearly mapped curriculum where progression of skills and knowledge is evident and referenced to government curriculum guidance. However, the mathematics curriculum goes far beyond what is taught in maths lessons. We encourage children to make links to real life through their maths learning and ensure we enrich their learning of mathematics at every available opportunity. 

We intend that all children will become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics so that they develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately. We ask children to explain, reason, prove and explore number and we encourage them to share their understanding with others. This approach, coupled with enabling children with the confidence and clear accurate use of mathematical vocabulary empowers the children to deepen their understanding and develop true mastery within the subject. 


 Pure mathematics is, in its way, the poetry of logical ideas.

Mathematics is a language.
