Maths at High Wycombe Church of England Combined School             


First and foremost we want our children at High Wycombe Church of England Combined Primary School to enjoy their maths lessons. We believe that if children are happy and engaged they will learn and thrive. It is of great importance that children develop a culture of deep understanding, confidence and competence in maths and have a sound grasp of numerical concepts (the value of a number) before moving on, At HWCE we enable our children to explore and represent number in a variety of ways and promote the use of number across the curriculum.


Teachers provide the children with a wide range of opportunities to use maths and develop problem solving and reasoning skills through abstract challenges and investigative tasks. We encourage our children to develop a strong mathematical vocabulary and use talk as an effective tool for learning and understanding.


At HWCE we align our curriculum with White Rose Maths, through a spiral learning system, but also encourage the use of Maths Hub, NCETM and NRICH resources to develop a greater level of understanding and promote a mastery approach. Throughout the school teachers also regularly use starters  to promote mathematical fluency and reasoning through questioning.
