At BBIS, we are committed to ensuring that all of our students are successful in the three core areas of maths: fluency, reasoning and problem-solving. We are following the internationally recognised scheme known as White Rose Maths which ensures that a coherent, consistent approach is adopted across all year groups.
We believe that all students can succeed in maths. Our curriculum aims to provoke curiosity and foster an enthusiasm for maths in students as well as equip them with the skills they need to achieve the highest standards possible. Our goal is for our students to be confident in their conceptual understanding and use of maths so that they have the self-belief and determination to succeed when presented with a challenge.
We aim to promote mathematical talk as much as possible so that students become confident in discussing ideas and strategies and making a mathematical language of their own. A key principle of our approach is enabling children to recognise how maths relates to the wider world in order to give the subject meaning and relevance, and so that they can use their mathematical skills and knowledge in real-life situations.
