At Lothersdale Primary School, the purpose of mathematics is to equip children with the knowledge, skills and understanding to become assured mathematicians, with the confidence, depth and transferability to apply their understanding of maths to problem solve new situations in their next stage of life.

Children are taught to be enthusiastic, passionate and resilient mathematicians. Children are tasked to think and reason mathematically, applying skills fluently and efficiently, arriving at the accurate answer. At Lothersdale Primary School, we are ardent about ensuring that all children receive a knowledge rich mathematical education through well sequenced and well planned units of work which builds upon each child’s prior learning.
