Statement of Intent

At The Ridge, it is our intent to promote a culture of enjoyment of mathematics throughout the school and foster a resilience in children by championing ‘can do’ attitudes and approaches, which embed depth of understanding within the subject. Mathematics is an essential life skill. Through high quality teaching and learning, we aim to inspire and create confident and happy mathematicians who thrive from the challenge of mathematics across the curriculum and are well prepared for the next step in their education.

We aim for all children to become fluent and confident mathematicians, by developing their key skills and knowledge. It is our intent to support and encourage all children to understand the number system, calculate, reason, solve problems and explore maths in depth using mathematical vocabulary to reason and explain their workings. We want all children to experience success in the subject, regardless of starting points, and strive to enable good progress for all.

It is our intent to develop mathematical knowledge and understanding through using the National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics (NCETM) Mastery approach to learning. We want children to develop mathematics as a transferrable skill, applying their understanding to a range of real-life situations.
