At Calverley CE we are committed to providing children with an exciting and enriching mathematics curriculum. Children will develop their factual maths knowledge, practice skills, investigate and reason, problem solve and analyse maths in a wide range of contexts.
At Calverley CE School, we have three clear aims for teaching and learning in maths:
*Conceptual understanding (Phase 1 and Phase 2) - Children should become fluent in the fundamentals of maths. The children should develop a factual knowledge of the basic concepts in maths. They should practice skills which increase in complexity over time.
*Mathematical reasoning (Phase 3) - Children will be able to reason mathematically following a line of enquiry. Through doing this they should be able to test relationships of number and generalisations, and develop an argument, justify or prove using mathematical language. They should solve reasoning problems, puzzles and investigations appropriate to their stage of learning, applying their factual knowledge and skills to do this.
*Problem solving (Phase 4/5) - Children will solve real problems by applying mathematical understanding to a variety of problems. These will gradually increase with sophistication and require the child to break down the problem into a series of simpler steps.
K.I.R.F (Key Instant Recall Facts) - To aid fluency children are given half termly K.I.R.F targets (Key Instant Recall Facts). These targets help to develop essential mental arithmetic skills and can be worked on both at home and in school.

The guidance, below, is to help plan the teaching of the statutory mathematics curriculum in primary schools in England. This guidance:
- identifies the core concepts that are needed for pupils to progress in their study of mathematics
- demonstrates how pupils can build their understanding of these concepts from year 1 to year 6
