At Mountjoy our Maths Curriculum teaches the basic numeracy skills and also the application of these skills which make us effective in the world.
- Equip pupils with the knowledge and understanding necessary for daily living.
- Develop their mathematical skills required to study other subjects.
- Ability to develop logical reasoning, problem solving strategies and the ability to think in abstract ways.
- Foster a positive attitude to mathematics and an appreciation of its relevance and value.
We make our maths relevant and engaging through using visual resources by showing our pupils how it can apply to their own lives. Emphasis is placed on the cross-curricular nature of maths and every opportunity is taken to use this throughout our school day.
We work closely with Beaminster School Comprehensive and the opportunities are there to support further learning in GCSE’s.
