Teachers will use every relevant subject to develop students’ mathematical fluency. Confidence in numeracy and other mathematical skills is a precondition of success across the national curriculum.


  • Numeracy will be an enabler, not a block to accessing the wider curriculum.
  • Developing, maintaining and improving standards in numeracy and mathematical skills across the school.
  • Ensuring consistency of practice, including methods, vocabulary, notation etc.
  • Finding areas for collaboration between subjects.
  • Assisting the transfer of students’ knowledge, skills and understanding between subjects.
  • Ensuring that all teachers are teachers of numeracy.
  • Enable students to improve their problem solving and reasoning to mathematical problems as well as their fluency with arithmetic problems.
