Welcome to the maths-related pages of our website!


On this page, you will find information relating to the National Curriculum in England, which became statutory across all primary year groups from September 2015.


On the 'Maths Support for Parents' page you will find information specific to parents about how to help their children with maths-related activities and learning, including links to an online maths dictionary to support with some tricky mathematical vocabulary, as well as to our Calculation Policy, designed by staff at the school to support others involved in our children's mathematical development to best help them to develop effective and efficient methods of adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing.


The national curriculum for mathematics aims 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.

    [Primary National Curriculum 2013]


Our maths curriculum at Muscliff Primary School is organised such that pupils will be required to make connections across this subject as well as other subject areas in order to develop fluency, reasoning and competence in solving increasingly complex problems in a wide range of contexts.
