Maths is an essential part of everyday life. The aim of maths is to ensure pupils have an understanding of number, reason mathematically and solve problems. Teachers will ensure pupils’ understanding and concepts are embedded before moving on. Pupils have many opportunities to consolidate their understanding with additional practical experiences and have the opportunity to apply their mathematical knowledge in other areas of the curriculum to develop their confidence in increasingly functional ways. Throughout the school we use Numicon to support the pupils learning and understanding. Progression of pupils is assessed across the school in various ways including Evidence for Learning, B squared and assessments books linked to the functional exams. Kemball is a Numicon Advocate School.
