Educating Today's Child For Tomorrow

Maths Curriculum

For us, the answer is not enough - we want deeper thinkers; for our children to be able use mathematical vocabulary to reason with fluency and fluidity, demonstrating a clarity of thinking and an ability to articulate clear progression in learning.


We value a Maths curriculum that is interesting, engaging and creates reasoning. All children have access to this curriculum through the HfL Essentials Approach. Our children need to develop the necessary skills to make them “deep thinkers”, acquiring Maths skills that can be recalled swiftly, then transferred and applied in different contexts. The children need to be able to make rich connections across the areas of Maths, and use their knowledge and apply their understanding throughout the curriculum. Maths is the foundation for understanding the world and we want our children to know the purpose behind their learning and to apply their knowledge to their everyday lives.
