"Leaders have focused on improving maths since the last inspection.  The teaching of maths is strong.  Pupils learn basic skills well and have secure knowledge of mental arithmetic.  All pupils gain a good understanding of different mathematical concepts.  This includes pupils with SEND'.

The intent of our mathematics curriculum is to design a curriculum which is accessible to all and will maximise the development of every child’s ability and academic achievement. With a 'mastery' approach to mathematics, our curriculum has been designed to support and challenge all pupils and is built on the belief that everyone can learn maths successfully. At Scholes, we want to encourage this generation of mathematicians to be excited about maths, and to apply their maths skills to their everyday lives. We want our pupils to have an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, a sense of enjoyment and develop their curiosity about the subject.

By delivering carefully planned, connected lessons using the 'Five Big Ideas', we work to meet the aims of the National Curriculum 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
