## CURRICULUM

## Maths

## Maths Curriculum Intent

Mathematics increases students’ resilience for problem solving when they have limited information. It teaches them how to think and work systematically, critically analyse information and effectively communicate the steps within their thinking. Our curriculum adopts a ‘no tricks’ approach to teaching, developing a growth mindset: everybody can do mathematics. We aim to increase awareness and understanding of where the mathematics is used in the real world to enable our students to be ‘school ready, work, ready, life ready’.
