Terrington St Clement Community School

A traditional school with traditional values where

we aspire, succeed and thrive


At our school we wanted all learners to develop a love of maths and the confidence to give things  a go.  We have a shared vision for maths teaching

Shared Vision for Maths

Maths lessons at our school will have:

  • Accurate vocabulary developed and used by all

  • A chance to explore Maths through the use of concrete and pictorial representations in order to understand abstract concepts

  • A range of questions led by high-quality resources

  • Clear modelling 

  • Opportunities for students to apply their learning to deepen their understanding

  • Opportunities for our learners to collaborate and discuss their ideas 

  • The space to value everyone’s ideas 

The culture of Maths at our school will include: 

  • A safe environment to make mistakes

  • A space where mistakes are celebrated and used as a learning tool 

  • Every child being given the opportunity to progress, achieve and be challenged on their own mathematical journey

  • All stakeholders understanding that Maths is for everyone and everyone can achieve in Maths

We use resources from the White Rose Maths Hub to plan our coverage and supplement our maths curriculum. The maths topic areas covered in each term are detailed on our unit plans in Years A or B.  We cover the same topic areas each year with learning adapted to reflect the starting points of our learners and ensure they make good progress.  More information about the progression in each maths topic and between year groups  can be found in the Maths Progression document attached at the bottom of this page.
