Maths

Curriculum Statement:

At Watermill School, maths is an important element of every child's learning journey. Throughout the school, as well as having maths as a stand-alone subject, opportunities in other subjects are always used to include maths across the curriculum, making it as real-life and as engaging as possible for all our pupils.

Our pupils will experience a wide range of maths concepts including aspects of Number, Measurement (length, mass and capacity), Geometry (shape, position and direction), Using and Applying/Problem Solving and Data Handling. Pupils will experience varied levels of these concepts in our different pathways in school.

At Watermill School, we are aware that our pupils all learn in different ways and we ensure that we use a range of appropriate methods, resources and apparatus to support and aid our pupils’ learning. Our calculation policy embraces the Singapore style of maths teaching and learning and also using aspects of Numicon across different parts of the curriculum.

Our vision for maths here at Watermill School is that we strive for our pupils to enjoy maths and experience it through practical, fun and real-life experiences in and out of the classroom, with a focus on using and applying their knowledge and skills to develop a deeper and more thorough conceptual learning of the maths curriculum.
