At Gunthorpe Primary School, our intention is to:

- Promote positive attitudes and enthusiasm towards Mathematics.

- Develop confidence and competence with numbers and the number system (both written and mentally) through the application of a 'concrete - abstract - pictorial' learning journey where explanation and reasoning opportunities are embedded alongside problem-solving. 

- Ensure a progressive development of mathematical concepts, knowledge, skills and vocabulary across the school, in line with the National Curriculum 2014, using a 'Mastery for All' approach. 

- Develop an ability to explore Mathematics - both independently and collaboratively - in a range of contexts with confidence, flexibility and a logical approach. 

- Undertake mathematical enquiry, communicating ideas using reasoning, the application of mathematical understanding and precise mathematical vocabulary. 

- Appropriately challenge learners of all abilities.
