Maths at Chacewater School

Maths has a huge focus at our school. Our Headteacher is the maths lead for the Cornwall West Devon Maths Hub. We have had visitors from China come to teach maths at our school and we have lots of visitors from schools in Cornwall and Devon come to see how we teach maths based on Shanghai principles. Our focus is about spending longer on key topics by taking small steps to ensure we have a deep understanding of our maths. We also ensure that we are addressing the three key aims of the National curriculum - fluency, reasoning and problem solving - in our work. Our wonderful staff have created our own number fluency policy which describes how we undertake calculations at each year group. The document is attached in this curriculum section to help parents to support their children. 
We also have an initiative called the 99 club which helps our children with their fluency - information about this is in this section too.
Finally, vocabulary is really vital when it comes to learning maths - we have also a useful document to support children and parents in this section.
