Much Woolton Catholic Primary School


We are dedicated to providing a relevant, fun and engaging maths curriculum for all of our pupils.  We want children to enjoy maths and understand the importance of maths in real life situations.  To do this, we use the Mastery approach to teaching, supported by the Maths- No Problem! resources and NCETM documents. By using the mastery approach, we aim to develop a deeper understanding of maths in all learners. Pupils are taught to explore problems, investigate methods and develop problem solving skills whilst journaling their ideas and learning.

How is Maths a sacred subject? 
The ultimate purpose of Maths is the pursuit of truth. The thinking skills inherent in the math curriculum should inspire and enable learners to be innovative, creative, critical and analytical learners. Exploring the beauty of mathematics enables all learners to engage with the transcendent dimensions of life, freeing them to be pioneers, trailblazers and the inventors needed today and in the future. The real- world context comes first, and the theory comes second.
