Our Vision

Here at Holden Clough, we empower our children with a ‘CAN DO’ attitude in mathematics.  We encourage all children to explore their own mathematical understanding, and in doing so, develop their arithmetical proficiency, reasoning and problem solving skills.  We want our children to be confident mathematicians who understand the relevance of maths to everyday life. (Full vision statement can be found under the 'Policies & Documents page below)

The National Curriculum

 

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.
