’To develop a Maths curriculum in which students enjoy, think and see how we use Mathematics in the outside world, and a curriculum in which staff enjoy teaching and like to challenge.’
Mr H Khan 2017
The teaching of mathematics at Southern Cross is geared towards enabling each child to develop within their own capabilities; not only the mathematical skills and understanding required for later life, but an enthusiasm and fascination about maths itself.
We aim to increase pupil confidence in maths so that they can express themselves and their ideas clearly using the language of maths with confidence.
We want children to take pride in their mathematical knowledge and achievements.
We are continually aiming to raise the standard of achievement in mathematics at Southern Cross.
We aim to work in partnership with children, their parents, Governors and support services.
The National Curriculum for Mathematics describes what must be taught in each key stage. Southern Cross follows the National Curriculum. It helps to ensure continuity and progression in the teaching of Mathematics from Year 5 to Year 7. The Year 8 and 9 is currently being revised.
