Numeracy is a core subject, and is key to a successful primary education; when a child leaves our School at the end of Year 6 we would expect him or her to be Numerate, that is to have sufficient understanding of the four number operations and of place value to be able to face the numerical challenges of the world outside the classroom; many of our older students are capable well beyond this level.

The Numeracy curriculum places strong emphasis on the ability of the pupil to use and apply mathematical skills and/or knowledge through problems, investigations and real world situations.

The largest component to the Numeracy curriculum is the development of number skills. Additionally, the study of shape, space, measure and data handling are key areas of attainment.

The subject is led by Esther Alexandrides in KS1 and Colin Evans in KS2.

It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it
