At Northlands Primary School and Nursery, we are committed to fostering a love for mathematics and empowering our students to excel in the subject. Our approach is rooted in the core aims of the National Curriculum:


  • Mastery of mathematical fundamentals,
  • Development of reasoning abilities,
  • Proficiency in problem solving.


We employ an engaging curriculum, utilising resources from the White Rose Maths Hub scheme alongside S-Plans, which ensure coverage of all the key skills within a mathematical concept.

Our students thrive in a positive Maths environment, where they actively participate in practical activities, games and real-world applications. Through group discussions and individual exploration, they develop confidence, mathematical language, and critical thinking skills.  




In the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), we utilize the Mathematical Development Programme of Development Matters to build upon the inherent skills of our young learners. Through a blend of exploration, enjoyment, practice and discussion, children are encouraged to develop their mathematical understanding. Our approach balances child-led activities with adult guidance, fostering confidence and competence.


In Key Stage 1 (KS1) and Key Stage 2 (KS2), our teaching is anchored in the National Curriculum 2014 – Mathematics Programme of Study. This framework outlines clear expectations for each academic year. Mathematics is woven into daily lessons, with cross-curricular connections emphasised, including with ICT. Furthermore, dedicated Mental and Oral sessions supplement our main lessons, ensuring a comprehensive approach to mathematical learning.
