At Stoborough Primary School, we have worked hard to develop a mastery approach in order to deliver the three aims of the National Curriculum; fluency, reasoning and problem solving. Underpinning this pedagogy is a belief that all children can achieve in mathematics. Teaching for conceptual understanding is at the heart of everything we do. There us no ceiling on our learning, and the culture in our school suggests we merely have 'quick graspers' and 'slow graspers,' so all learners are appropriately challenged.
Our approach aims to provide all children with full access to the curriculum, enabling them to develop independence, confidence and competence- mathematical 'mastery' which will mean the children are well-equipped to apply their learning to the wider world.
We want all children to enjoy Mathematics and to experience success in the subject, with the ability to reason mathematically. We are committed to developing children's curiosity about the subject, as well as an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics.
