English/Mathematics

English:

At St. Mary's CEP, staff aim to create an environment that fosters a love of language and literature through the use of quality texts and books; this inspires, excites and engages our children. Our children will speak and write fluently, enabling them to communicate with others.

Systematic Synthetic Phonics is delivered using the 'Success for All' teaching programme.

Mathematics:

“A high-quality mathematics education … provides a foundation for understanding the world.” National Curriculum 2014

At St Mary’s CEP, a mastery approach to teaching and learning in Mathematics has been adopted. With this approach, we aim to give pupils a deep, long-term, secure and adaptable understanding.

To support children in achieving this, we use the White Rose Primary Scheme of Learning; this is used to both support and challenge children’s understanding, in line with the high expectations of the National Curriculum and the 'Ready to Progress' criteria and guidance materials.

We believe that together, both staff and children are building a whole new culture of deeper understanding, confidence and competence in Maths – a culture that produces strong, secure learning and real progress: learning where everyone can master!
