What do we want children to learn? How will we see our pupils flourishing in their maths lessons?

Our school vision is based on John 10:10, ‘I have come in order that you should have life, life in all its fullness,’ and 
our vision in Maths is profoundly intertwined.  St Peter’s recognises that maths is both a key skill within school, and a life skill to be utilised through everyday experiences. We want our children to leave us as confident, skilled, and resilient mathematicians and understand that mathematics is a fundamental part of everyday life. We aim to create curiosity around the subject and give all  children a sense of achievement.

We will see our pupils flourishing through the observations of:
• A positive attitude towards maths and an awareness of the relevance of maths in the real world.
• A process of enquiry and experiment. 
• An ability to solve problems and think logically in order to work systematically and accurately. 
• An ability to work both independently and in cooperation with others. 
• Competence and confidence in pupils’ maths knowledge, concepts, and skills.
How do we teach our Maths Curriculum – what does Maths look like at St Peter’s? 

At St Peter’s, we follow the National Curriculum for maths, and we use White Rose Maths to support the planning and delivery of the maths objectives in Key Stage 1 & 2.

White Rose Maths is a research-based scheme of learning, which has been expertly designed to support a mastery* approach to teaching and learning. Used by 80% of schools in England, it is consistent with the aims and objectives of the National Curriculum.

*A mathematical concept or skill has been mastered when, through exploration, practise and application, a child can represent it in multiple ways and can apply it to a new problem. This mastery style of teaching underpins everything the children learn within maths lessons, using different representations, manipulatives, and reasoning problems.

Pupils are exposed to fluency through the concrete, pictorial and abstract approach so that they understand maths concepts fully.

Please find further information on our delivery of the maths curriculum


The NNW Maths Hub is one of a network of 40 Maths Hubs in England, working together within the Maths Hub Programme, which began in 2014. The programme is funded by the Department of Education (DfE) and coordinated by the National Centre of Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics (NCETM).

Children’s chances of succeeding in education and life will be maximised if they develop deep and lasting procedural and conceptual mathematical understanding.

Mastering maths means pupils acquiring a deep, long-term, secure and adaptable understanding of the subject.

  • The phrase ‘teaching for mastery’ describes the elements of classroom practice and school organisation that combine to give pupils the best chances of mastering maths.
  • Achieving mastery means acquiring a solid enough understanding of the maths that’s been taught to enable pupils to move on to more advanced material.
  • The Teaching for Mastery Programme comprises a range of projects and activities at the heart of all Maths Hubs’ work.

St. Peter’s are delighted to be part of the 2023-2024 Primary Mastery Readiness Work Group and Development Programme as part of our mastery journey.


At St. Peter’s, we use Times Tables Rock Stars to promote the enjoyment and importance of multiplication from Year 2 through to Year 6. Each child will be issued with individual login details.


Times Tables Rock Stars is a website that we subscribe to, giving our children the resources to encourage and inspire them to not only learn the basics of the maths curriculum, but to enjoy it. It is a carefully sequenced programme of daily times tables practice aimed to encourage children to learn and practice their times tables (and related facts) more. 


We monitor the use of TTRS at home, and also have weekly competitions where children can play against each other and against other classes. Each week, the class teacher will recognise children who have performed well, and the TTRS trophy will be awarded to the class who have earned the most points!


We hope this provision will also assist our children when mastering their times tables, ready for their Year 4 Multiplication Tables Check (MTC).
