As part of our Maths vision, we strive for all students to become fluent in the fundamentals of Mathematics, developing conceptual knowledge and an ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately.

Our aim is to ensure that our students can reason mathematically and solve problems and to develop a `can do` attitude and perceive themselves as resilient and become great Warlingham and lifelong learners.

Our curriculum aims to ensure that all students develop Mathematics knowledge, conceptual understanding, Skills and Learner attributes through our core strands of Number, Algebra, Ratio & Proportion, Statistics and Probability. The curriculum is a progression model, through which the ‘big ideas’ are developed and built upon, as students develop their own schema for Maths, underpinned by the continual development around students' curiosity, fluency, reasoning and problem-solving skills.

Key Skills running through our curriculum maps

  • Fluency
  • Resilience
  • Reasoning Skills
