Maths at Clyst Heath

The Primary Maths curriculum aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • Become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics
  • Problem solve with increasing sophistication
  • Are able to reason mathematically

At Clyst Heath we achieve these aims by:

  1. Having the highest expectations for all our students
  2. Creating a mathematically rich environment within our school.
  3. Developing increased fluency in the fundamentals of mathematics through our ‘skills hour.’
  4. Use of 'Flipped Classrooms' to pre-teach children and inform parents how children are being taught in the classroom so that they can apply these strategies at home.
  5. Detailed planning with clear differentiation that ensures all children are accessing the curriculum and are being challenged on a daily basis.
  6. Rigorous assessment that informs both teacher and student the next steps needed to take their learning forward.
