Our School Vision for Mathematics


  • Children at Holy Trinity have an enjoyment of and enthusiasm for mathematics and, as they move through the school – from the very early days in Reception to the final days in Year 6 – they receive a seamless and progressive diet of provision enabling them to become both confident and competent when working mathematically


  • Children are provided with a securely embedded academic approach of concrete, pictorial, abstract where each new mathematical concept is taught with understanding and reasoning at the forefront


  • Concrete - the children ‘see’ the numbers and problems through manipulation of apparatus such as Dienes, place value counters, etc.

  • Pictorial – the children develop their understanding through use of images on the screen and on paper

  • Abstract – the children apply their understanding through formal, written calculations


  • A golden thread of reasoning and problem solving throughout all lessons, builds up children’s mathematical understanding as well as their stamina and resilience


  • A consistency in the use of subject-specific vocabulary across the school aids and supports children’s understanding


  • The acquisition of both arithmetical and reasoning skills enables children confidently to apply understanding across the curriculum, for example to use multiplication when working on equivalent fractions


  • Regular assessments inform planning, allowing teachers to provide opportunities to address misconceptions in understanding as well as opportunities to gain greater confidence and fluency, particularly with arithmetical skills
