Welcome to the Maths Department

… where we proudly foster a ‘can do’ attitude with our ‘YesUCan’ mindset.

We aim that students:

• are mathematically coherent

By focusing on one key point each lesson, students achieve deep and sustainable learning and make mathematical connections.

• understand mathematical structure

By using varied representations, students understand the structure of mathematics.

• are mathematically fluent

By discussing appropriate methods, strategies and approaches, students work efficiently, accurately and flexibly.

• think mathematically

By focusing on the principal that 'the answer is only the beginning', students describe, explain, justify, convince and prove mathematical ideas.

• are resilient

By providing opportunities to solve problems in both familiar and unfamiliar contexts, students develop their resilience and embrace a 'have a go' attitude.
