Leigh Primary School



Leigh Primary School prides itself on developing strong mathematical skills within all pupils. Children are supported from the earliest years and upwards to develop their understandiMaths Resourcesng of number and logical reasoning. We aim to provide opportunities for pupils to use and develop their mathematic skills using computing and across the broader curriculum, as well as providing opportunities for children to use and apply their mathematical skills in a meaningful context. Learning opportunities are presenting in interesting and enjoyable ways that allow the children to actively participate in the learning process, thus creating a sense of achievement and confidence. There is a strong emphasis on the development of mental calculation skills and on problem solving skills. Individual progress is monitored closely allowing us to make sure that all children are supported in becoming independent learners with access to a wide range of mathematical skills. We have a weekly maths cup linked with our Mental Arithmetic books that go home every week. The cup is presented in our Achievement Assembly on a Friday morning and the winning class get to keep the cup for the week.

In the autumn term each year we run Parent Workshops to explain how we are teaching mathematics and English. As part of Leigh Primary School's commitment to parent partnerships we would like to share our curriculum policies with you online.  These documents have been discussed and explained in our recent Maths Workshops for KS1 and KS2.  The materials and handouts given out to at these sessions can be downloaded below.   

If you have any further queries with regard to mathematics please contact your class teacher or Mrs Halfhide for any further advice or support.
