Maths curriculum

The primary curriculum's focus is very much on core knowledge, and the ‘nuts and  bolts’ of subjects that will ensure children have a strong basis on which to build future learning.

The programme of study for maths is set out on a year-by-year basis, and is shown below.


The programme of study for maths is more specific about using standard written methods for the four operations, and using these earlier. There is a lot more emphasis on calculating and solving problems with fractions and decimals and less on data handling (now called statistics).

We as a school will follow Lancashire maths team yearly plans. Each yearly overview can be found below
