Through our Mathematics curriculum, our pupils will develop an enjoyment and curiosity about maths regardless of their attainment or background. Our pupils also will be equipped with the fluency, reasoning and problem-solving expertise that will enable them to be numerate and mathematically creative members of society. Children of The Coombes will leave school at the end of Year 6 so that they are secondary ready to continue their onward mathematical learning.
Assessments of the children's mathematical knowledge and understanding is ongoing throughout the year. We use teacher assessment of children's mathematical learning and record this data on Target Tracker for ease of pupil attainment and progress analysis and monitoring. Every half term, teachers record each pupil's mathematical progress and attainment. Assessment includes observations, discussions and written outcomes, including half termly summative assessments. Regular pupil progress meetings, held with the SLT, allow us to discuss the mathematical learning of all pupils in school. Progress and attainment are reported to parents during parent's evening appointments and in annual reports that are sent home.
“So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom."
