Through our maths mastery teaching at the St Thomas a Becket C of E Federation, our aim is for all children, regardless of their starting point, to develop a fluent and deep understanding of fundamental mathematical concepts and procedures. We want them to develop vital life skills, and a curious and positive attitude towards maths. We want our children to show perseverance, resilience and proficiency in the different areas of the maths curriculum, recalling and applying knowledge rapidly and accurately, and to be problem solvers, who can reason, think logically, work systematically and apply their knowledge of maths.
