Bearbrook Combined School

An Academy of the Great Learners Trust




Children know that maths is a vital life skill that they will rely on in many areas of their daily life. Children have a positive view of maths due to learning in an environment where maths is promoted as being an exciting and enjoyable subject in which they can investigate and ask questions; they know that making mistakes is an important step, and this can strengthen their learning. Children are confident to ‘have a go’ and choose the equipment they need to help them to learn along with the strategies they think are best suited to each problem. 


Our feedback and interventions support children to strive to be the best mathematicians they can be, ensuring an increasing number of children are on track or above. Our school standards are high, we assess frequently and moderate our books to ensure children are achieving well. All children secure long-term, deep and adaptable understanding of maths which they can apply in different contexts
