Maths equips pupils with a uniquely powerful set of tools to understand and change the world. These tools include logical reasoning, problem solving skills and the ability to think in abstract ways. Mathematics is integral to all aspects of life, and with this in mind we endeavor to ensure that children develop a healthy and enthusiastic attitude towards all aspects of mathematics.

At Cranfield Academy we aim to make math’s lessons challenging, purposeful, relevant, inspirational, exciting and enjoyable. The pupil’s numerical experience should be continuous and progressive producing competent and confident young mathematicians who can use their skills in a wider context.

The Cranfield Curriculum for mathematics aims to ensure that all pupils:

The Cranfield Curriculum and classroom environments reflect the importance of spoken language in pupils’ development across the whole curriculum . Within each classroom you will see consistency in ‘Magic Maths’ displays which support pupil’s learning with the progressive language related to the four operations. The quality and variety of language that pupils hear and speak are key factors in developing their mathematical vocabulary and presenting a mathematical justification, argument or proof. Pupils are assisted in making their thinking clear to themselves as well as others.

At Cranfield Church of England Academy, the curriculum content and targets for each year group are in accordance with the Cranfield Curriculum Framework and aims for the highest standards of teaching and learning and clear progression for children at Cranfield. Your child's progress in Mathematics is shared termly. In Reception, this is with the Early Years Framework and in Years One to Year Four, with Stepping Stones.
