Maths at Carlton


At Carlton, we aim to develop a culture of deep understanding, confidence and competence in maths across the whole school – a culture that provides strong, secure mathematics in each year group. By building confidence, resilience and passion for maths, we show all children that maths is exciting, fun and rewarding. As such, we endeavour to make our work in mathematics engaging for all learners.  We recognise the importance of maths as an essential skill to everyday life.


Our main aims for our children are:

  • To become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics.
  • To be able to reason mathematically
  • To successfully solve problems by applying their mathematics knowledge 


Our curriculum is mapped by the White Rose Maths Hub scheme of work. The mapping of mathematics across school shows clear progression in line with age related expectations and within each unit taught. 


In EYS and KS1 children also have additional sessions to help them develop secure firm foundations in the development of good number sense and fluency through Mastery Number programme (NCETM). 


In KS2 children are taught four additional sessions a week which helps them to develop secure knowledge of the multiplication facts and multiplicative reasoning.
