At Tottington Primary School we are passionate about promoting high standards of mathematical understanding. Through combining the Early Years and National Curriculum with our TPS core values, our ambitious maths curriculum equips all our children with the necessary skills in mathematics.


By the end of their time in primary school, our children will have a secure understanding of the key concepts of mathematics so they can use and apply their knowledge across the wider curriculum. Our children will have a sense of the size of a number and know where it fits into our number system. They will be able to know by heart key number facts, including number bonds and multiplication tables. Our pupils will have developed the ability to use what they have learnt to calculate efficiently, both mentally and with pencil and paper, drawing on the calculation strategies they have been taught. They will be able to make sense of number problems and recognise the operations needed to solve them.  


Our children will learn how to explain their methods and reasoning, using correct mathematical terminology and will have strategies for checking them where necessary. They will be able to suggest suitable units for measuring, and make sensible estimates of measurements.  Pupils will also be able to explain the numbers in graphs, diagrams, charts and tables and make sense of these types of data.


Through our sequential, rigorous and progressive maths curriculum, our children will acquire and develop the skills they need to be ready for the next stage of their education and learning journey. These skills will enable the children of Tottington Primary School to become successful, active and positive members of their local community and wider world.
