Oak Tree Primary School


At Oak Tree Primary School, we have adopted a 'mastery' approach to teaching and learning within mathematics. Our aim is to ensure that mathematics is accessible to all of our children, so that they will become confident, skilled and resilient mathematicians. We want our children to thrive in a challenging environment and not be afraid to make mistakes.

    The National Curriculum for Mathematics


    Mathematics is a creative and highly inter-connected discipline that has been developed over centuries, providing the solution to some of history’s most intriguing problems. It is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment. A high-quality mathematics education therefore provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.


    The national curriculum for mathematics aims to ensure that all pupils:


    • become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately.
    • reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language
    • can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and nonroutine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.
