Mathematics Subject Leader - Mr Wilkinson




The School views mathematics as an integral part of life.  Children, who can calculate reason and solve mathematical problems, will be more able to analyse and communicate information and ideas.  They will be better prepared to tackle practical tasks and real-life problems as well as appreciating the inherent fascination of mathematics.



  1. To develop clear concepts, skills and knowledge to enable pupils to see the relevance of mathematical activity to real life situations using a wide range of activities.
  2. To develop pupils' confidence and perseverance to achieve their full potential.
  3. To show mathematics as a process, as a creative activity in which pupils are encouraged to use imagination, initiative and a flexibility of mind.
  4. To promote activities which develop an enjoyment of, and a fascination for mathematics as well as to use mathematics as an essential element of communication, be it oral, written or graphical.
  5. To develop an appreciation of the relationships within mathematics itself.
  6. To encourage pupils to work in a systematic way and develop good working habits
  7. To encourage pupils to work individually and collectively to a purposeful end.
  8. To ensure continuity and progression from the Foundation Stage and National Curriculum provision.


Crawshawbooth Primary aim to ensure that all pupils:


Become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately.

reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language

can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non‐routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.

are knowledgeable of key facts so that these can be used when reasoning and applying maths in context.

Maths Policy

We follow the National Curriculum and use the Lancashire ‘LAP’ documents to ensure learning in Maths is progressive and constantly builds on past skills and knowledge as children move up through the school. Please ask if you require further information. See Full progression of skills list below:

Maths Working Walls- we use these to help children remember key concepts and apply learning across the week.
