At Stanstead, we aim to allow every child to leave our school as a confident and competent mathematician.

We have moved towards the Mastery approach of teaching our maths lessons. To support this, we are using materials from the White Rose Math Hub.

Each lesson will allow the children to work on the following skills:


Fluency: Learning and knowing key facts, including number bonds and times tables, with a focus of the children becoming efficient with their calculations and noticing relationships and links to support the accuracy of their arithmetic.

Reasoning:  Regular opportunities to engage in rich, meaningful mathematical talk, allowing children to explain their answers and thoughts.

Problem solving: Regular opportunities for children to solve problems where they have to really think.

Children in Year 1 to Year 6 follow the National Curriculum for Mathematics. A copy of the school calculation policy can be found below.
