Mathematics Curriculum Statement
This academic year we have begun the transition from the Maths No Problem scheme to the Primary Advantage Maths Programme. This transition was implemented to address the significant challenges we face with the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and the impact that the lockdown periods have had on our children’s learning. The Primary Advantage approach will allow us to provide a bespoke maths curriculum for our children, meet the National Curriculum requirements and ensure accelerated and sustained progress.
Our aim at Medlock is to create competent and capable mathematicians who actively demonstrate resilience and embrace all forms of maths challenges. Our children are encouraged to be independent learners who demonstrate fluency and reasoning skills throughout maths lessons. At the heart of our maths teaching is the Concrete Pictorial and Abstract (CPA) approach. CPA is intrinsic to the MNP and PA Maths Programmes - we believe it is a supportive way of developing children’s deep conceptual understanding, good progression and positive attitudes to maths. Our overarching goal is to provide a differentiated, inclusive, challenging and engaging maths curriculum which supports all learners in achieving their full potential.
