At Tuckswood we recognise the importance of mathematics in daily to day life and seek to continue leading children through the journey to mathematical literacy. We seek to teach the children an ambitious mathematics curriculum which inspires curiosity and prepares them for future employment.

The national curriculum for mathematics aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • Become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including the varied and regular practice of increasingly complex problems over time.

  • Reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, understanding relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language.

  • Can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.


Mathematics lessons are designed to have children working cooperatively to solve a variety of problems and build resilience. Through effective teaching we aim to encourage children to create a life-long love of learning and increase their own aspirations. Within our Mathematics lessons our children will learn a variety of skills, balancing the number aspects of the curriculum alongside more practical learning.
