"There is strong evidence of good systemic leadership and an aspirational culture, supporting strong outcomes for pupils and in raising standards for disadvantaged and SEND pupils" - Ofsted, February 2020


Mathematics education at Hove Junior School provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.

We are committed to ensuring that all pupils become fluent in the fundamentals, whilst ensuring that most pupils develop a comprehensive understanding of the subject.

Through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately.

They are able to reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, using mathematical language and can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of problems with increasing sophistication.

Through following a mastery approach to mathematics, children will develop a deep understanding of the curriculum through whole class teaching where the focus is on all pupils working together on the same lesson objective at the same time.

Please see below Year 3-6 key documents relating to teaching and learning of Maths. 

Please also review our Math Portfolio document which showcases the Maths Mastery approach across the school.
