At Ashford Oaks, our intent is to develop confident, resilient mathematicians who demonstrate a positive attitude towards maths and who recognise the importance of maths in their daily lives. All our pupils are given rich opportunities to build their knowledge, skills and understanding through following the aims of the National Curriculum: fluency, reasoning and problem solving. We strive for the students at Ashford Oaks to articulate their reasoning clearly and become collaborative learners supporting each other in achieving a greater understanding.
We use the White Rose schemes of learning to inform our planning and sequencing across EYFS, KS1 and KS2. Teachers use and adapt the White Rose planning to suit the needs of their class. Our maths lessons are inclusive for all and teachers carefully consider what scaffolding or challenge is required in each lesson. At Ashford Oaks, we want children to be tackling appropriately challenging tasks and know that by making mistakes they can move their learning forward.
At Ashford Oaks we are on a journey to improve the teaching and learning of mathematics.
