Maths Lead - Mr Porter

Our Intention

Here at Holden Clough, we intend to try and empower all of our children with a ‘CAN DO’ attitude in mathematics.  We encourage 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 on leaving us at the end of KS2 are not only well equipped with the necessary mathematical skills required for KS3, but also beginning to understand the relevance of maths to everyday life and the wider world. (Full curriculum intent 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.

During our Festival of Triangles week, parents and students were invited to our Maths Cafe where there were lots of fun activities going on. We are raising the profile of mathematics at school so children find more enjoyment in the subject! Thank you to all who were involved in helping.
DO NOT send your child into school if they have any ONE of the following symptoms: (1) A HIGH TEMPERATURE (this mean they feel hot to the touch on their back or chest) - (2) A NEW, CONTINUOUS COUGH (this means coughing a lot, for more than one hour, or 3 or more coughing episode within 24 hours) - (3) A LOSS OR CHANGE TO SENSE OF SMELL OR TASTE (this means they cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal)
