At the Sir John Colfox Academy, we are aiming to build a culture of deep understanding, confidence and competence in maths – a culture that produces strong, secure learning and real progress; no matter what the starting point.
As we prove this to students, we aim to shape assured, happy and resilient mathematicians who relish the challenge of maths. They become independent, reflective thinkers, whose skills not only liberate them in maths but also support them across the curriculum.
Our long-term aim is to produce an ambitious, connected curriculum accessible to all pupils in schools right through from Year 7 to the end of Year 13.
We want pupils to become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, to be able to reason and to solve problems. Our curriculum, based upon the White Rose Maths Mastery approach, provides guidance to help pupils to become:
Visualisers – we use the Concrete/Pictorial/Abstract approach to help pupils understand mathematics and to make connections between different representations.
Describers – we place great emphasis on mathematical language and questioning so pupils can discuss the mathematics they are doing, and so support them to take ideas further.
Experimenters – as well as being fluent mathematicians, we want pupils to love and learn more about mathematics.
