Maths at Frant

Intents Train up a child...

  • EVERYDAY SKILLS - Mathematics is important in everyday life. A sound understanding of mathematical concepts, incuding time and money,  is a fundamental life skill required as children go forth into the community. Therefore our intention is to teach children the basics of maths to be self-sufficient as they move on beyond primary school.
  • FUTURE OPPORTUNITIES - Mathematics equips pupils with a uniquely powerful set of tools to understand and change the world. These tools include logical reasoning, problem solving skills and the ability to think in abstract ways. These building blocks will lead the way to build futur careers. Therefore our intention is to guide children to see how Maths has a place in the world and is not a discrete subject.
  • ONGOING ENQUIRY - We endeavour to ensure that pupils develop a positive and enthusiastic attitude towards mathematics that will stay with them. Therefore our intention is to raise the profile of Maths, encouraging enquiry and not just being passive receivers of techniques, instead investigators and appliers of knowledge.
  • AWARENESS - It is vital that a positive attitude towards mathematics is encouraged amongst all of our pupils in order to foster confidence and achievement in a skill. We recgonise that we develop in differnt ways. Therefore our intention is to support children to recognise their strengths and weaknesses and instil a desire to make progress.


To achieve our intentions, around the school you will see:

  • Enquiry based lessons to inspire all learners. 
  • Delivery by specialist teacher/s where possible to ensure high quality content.
  • Thorough curriculum coverage in the timetable to ensure that the many aspects of Maths are taught.
  • Well-planned lessons to support and yet enrich the differing needs of the learners. 
  • A scheme of work which enables concepts to be re-visited to ensure embedding.
  • Regular monitoring and data analysis by the senior leaders, which is fed back to stakeholders.
  • Regular contact with and support for parents via information sent home, added to the website or in face-to-face worshops. 


The impact can be measured by:

  • Talking to the children! They will share with you enthusiasm towards the subject, a ‘can do’ attitude with strategies to access at all levels.
  • Talking to the parents! Parents are communicated to regularly about the progress oftheir child, with information given on how to support at home. Many attend workshops and there is an open door policy where parents can contact the class teachers is they need help or guidance. 
  • Good results in statutory assessments, for progress and attainment. In spite of the considerable disruption caused by the Covid19 pandemic, 91% of our children achieved or exceeded their KS2 target in 2022 (based on their KS1 assessment data), including 45% achieving Greater Depth Standard in Maths.   

White Rose Maths

At Frant, we use the White Rose Scheme as the basis for our Maths curriculum. 

The documents below are from White Rose and are only an outline of the topics and the order in which they will be taught. Each teacher will use their professional judgment to decide if an area of mathematics will need to be explored for a longer period of time. Likewise, if the teacher believes that the class have certain gaps in their learning, this area of maths may well be taught sooner than stated on the original Long Term Plan.
