|Fairway Mathematics Curriculum|
At Fairway Primary School, our intent is to deliver a maths curriculum which develops children’s sense of enjoyment and curiosity of mathematics. In short, we want them to love maths!
At Fairway, we encourage children to EXPLORE all aspects of mathematics, KNOW key facts and calculation methods in order to apply these to problem solving and reasoning and to COMMUNICATE their knowledge and understanding confidently and effectively.
During their learning journey at Fairway we want children to develop an understanding of the following key concepts:
We aim to develop cultural capital in our learners, by empowering them with essential mathematical skills to confidently tackle math problems in everyday life. This will prepare them for the next stage of their education and enable them to become financially astute and resourceful citizens.
Inclusion is at the core of our vision and ethos. We have developed opportunities to consider the nine protected characteristics of the Equality Act, British Values and children’s development of Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural education throughout our geography curriculum. We look to develop children’s awareness about the lives of others and this work is constantly changing and developing.

The expectation is that most of the children will move through the programme of study at broadly the same pace. Those children who are not sufficiently fluent will consolidate their learning before moving on. However, children who grasp concepts rapidly will be further challenged.
Through effective assessment, we gather important valuable information of children’s existing mathematical knowledge and skills and use this to inform our planning and teaching sequences. We believe that encouraging children to explore mistakes and misconceptions is an essential part of new maths learning.
Mathematics lessons are planned to:
Our maths curriculum enables children to:
