Maths Area

At Burlington, we strive to build confidence of mathematics in all our pupils. We encourage them to look at mathematical concepts in a wide variety of ways and explore how maths is used in the modern world.

Children will develop their fluency of number facts and calculation strategies. They will then use this to find and explain connections in maths. We always provide opportunities in lessons for children to discuss the efficiency and accuracy of a range of methods which apply to the concept being studied. We make links between maths and the rest of the curriculum and make memorable moments which develop their knowledge and understanding, leading to mastery of the key principles.

Our scheme of work is created by using some of the latest advice from maths hubs around the country and the expertise we have here in the school. Our aim is that every child leaves Burlington as an excellent problem solver and critical thinker. We want all our pupils to really enjoy maths and develop a deeper understanding of the subject​.
