At St Columba’s we have a ‘Mastery’ approach to teaching and learning in Mathematics. We provide children with the necessary skills to develop their knowledge and understanding of mathematics whilst relating it to the world around them. Maths is a core skill that is required throughout life and as such, it is a cornerstone of our school curriculum.  Our aim is for all pupils to enjoy learning, be fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics and confidently apply their skills to reasoning opportunities.

At St Columba’s, we teach mathematics daily and our lessons follow our whole school teaching and learning strategy. Year groups typically follow the small steps given within the White Rose Planning Overviews. However, teachers use their professional judgement to make changes and tweak the sequence of lessons/units to meet the needs of the children in a particular cohort.
