Mathematics

  • At North Walsham we want to foster positive attitudes, resilience, fascination and excitement of discovery through the teaching and learning of mathematical concepts.
  • To develop a ‘can do’ attitude in our students, so they all view themselves as mathematicians.
  • We promote the view that in order to improve our mathematics skills, we must allow ourselves to make mistakes first.
  • North Walsham students will be encouraged to be inquisitive and try to understand how they turn a wrong answer into a right one. Being a reflective learner is crucial.
  • Build skills that allow students to become strong problem solvers.
  • To broaden children’s knowledge and understanding of how mathematics is used in the wider world in careers and in the home, by making rich and varied real-life connections.
  • To nurture and inspire students to seek mathematical excellence, so that they are enthused to pursue maths beyond the GCSE core curriculum.
  • To prepare and inspire more able students to forge careers and opportunities in mathematics and STEM subjects, without regard to perceived barriers.
  • To enable our pupils to confidently reason about their mathematics, using a suitable range of mathematical language, recognising its importance for communication and deep thinking.
  • Finally, we want all children to leave school with a love of mathematics, recognising its lifelong importance and value, regardless of the individual student’s mathematical competency.
