Maths at Holy Trinity

"Mathematics is an international language. It is an integral part of our lives in which we cannot live without. At Holy Trinity, we promote the applications of Maths in the wider world. We firmly believe that the mastery approach of practical, visual and abstract allows children to develop a deeper, clearer understanding of the concepts of maths. Pupils access varied fluency questions that promote a secure understanding of a Maths strand, and are encouraged to show answers in multiple ways, such as bar models and part whole models. Children are driven and determined in Maths, and challenge themselves through our range of ‘hot, super spicy and blow your mind’ activities. Pupils access problem solving and reasoning, applying their fluency skills to a wide range of contexts at a deeper level.


At Holy Trinity, we understand that pupils have strengths and areas for development in varying strands of Maths. Therefore, we use pre-learning tasks to assess children before a unit, which provides more precise teaching, and for pupils to start their challenge at their suited level for a particular objective. Post-learning tasks enable teachers and pupils to track progress at the end of a unit, and allow mathematical concepts to be embedded over time. Due to the high level of Mathematics teaching in our school, children are resilient, inquisitive and passionate about Maths."
