Maths – curriculum information

‘At Clifton we set the mathematical foundations on which many future life skills are built. Pupils become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, are provided with learning opportunities so that they are able to problem solve and to reason mathematically using mathematical language.

We want to inspire our children to develop an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics alongside a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.’
