Maths Curriculum

  • At Rossmere, mathematics is an important part of the broad and balanced curriculum.

    Maths at Rossmere Academy – Intent Statement

    Rossmere Academy uses the Mastery approach, to ensure that all children secure a long-term understanding of mathematics which they can apply in different contexts. The curriculum will create confident, enthusiastic, creative and articulate mathematicians. 

    Rossmere’s mathematics curriculum is progressive.

    The use of the Small Steps Approach, ensures that all children can master concepts before moving to the next part of the curriculum sequence, allowing no pupil to be left behind. 

    Using the Mastery approach, we place great emphasis on the use of concrete resources and pictorial representations at all ages and all abilities.  

    At Rossmere, we intend for all pupils to become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time.  This will enable pupils to develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately.

    At Rossmere, our intention is for all pupils to reason mathematically, by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language.

    At Rossmere, we intend all pupils to solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing difficulty, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.

    At Rossmere, we want to prepare children with the knowledge and skills needed for life beyond Rossmere Academy.

    Rapid Recall at Rossmere Academy

    Rapid Recall is essential for children to make progress in maths. Children need to know their number facts rapidly, so that they can build on this knowledge across the curriculum. As a school we practice this daily through Daily Count, Number of the Week and rapid revisit of year group specific number facts.
