At Wallsend Jubilee Primary School, we want every child to be happy and enthusiastic learners of Mathematics, and to be eager to achieve their very best in order to fulfil their talents. We firmly believe that the recipe for success is high quality first teaching in Mathematics, which is central to the life of our happy, caring school. We want all of our children ‘To be the best that they can be’. At Wallsend Jubilee Primary School, we strive for our children to be successful and proficient mathematicians who can solve problems, fluently recall facts rapidly and reason mathematically while justifying their reasoning. This will provide them with the essential life skills required to be financially capable while understanding and contributing to the world around them. It will allow them to create solutions to problems in a range of settings. To be successful, pupils should display the following attributes: curiosity, resourcefulness, determination, flexibility and bravery. We recognise that maths is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment. We aim to promote a love of maths while providing a high quality mathematics education with a mastery approach so that all children can: become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics; reason mathematically and solve problems by applying their mathematics.
