At Raglan we believe that Maths is essential to everyday life. We intend to give all children the ability to reason mathematically to provide a foundation for understanding the world. We strive to have confident and literate mathematicians that are able to navigate the challenges of employment and finance in later life. 

Our curriculum is designed to support a whole-group mastery approach and is consistent with the aims and objectives of the National Curriculum. We aim to ensure pupils become fluent in the fundamentals of Mathematics through a concrete, pictorial, abstract approach. 


At Raglan, we follow the White Rose progression and schemes of learning to deliver Maths lessons from Early Years to Year 6. This approach places the emphasis on mastery to build flexible learning with a depth of understanding the key concepts. At the beginning of a unit, children complete an assessment for learning task which helps teachers to identify gaps in learning and adapt planning to ensure appropriate pitch.

​​Children will develop their conceptual understanding, as well as the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately.  There is a daily emphasis on reasoning and problem-solving to apply the skills they learn. The children apply their knowledge to a range of different contexts where they develop an argument, provide justification or proof using mathematical language. Pupils should make rich connections across mathematical ideas to develop fluency, mathematical reasoning and competence in solving increasingly sophisticated problems. 

In Maths lessons children will: 

Mathematical development in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) relates to the Development Matters document and the Early Learning Goals, set out in the Statutory Framework for the EYFS alongside the Mathematics programme of study. This is aligned with the White Rose progression. Well-planned sequences of learning are taught to the whole class and purposeful focus activities enable pupils to apply their mathematical skills and understanding and to have meaningful conversations with peers and adults using mathematical vocabulary. Practitioners place key emphasis on manipulatives to introduce new mathematical concepts within lessons following the whole school CPA approach.
