Mathematics Subject Leader

Maths is an essential part of everyday life: it teaches children how to make sense of the world around them developing their ability to calculate and solve problems.  At Telford Infant School children use a range of equipment, including ICT, to develop their mathematical understanding and learn in a variety of ways and often through cross curricular links, for example data handling in Science. We aim to ensure that all children are able to appreciate how Mathematics links to everyday life and they learn fundamental skills such as time telling, using weights and measures and handling money.


At Telford Infant School our aim is to make Mathematics exciting, practical and relevant.  We follow a Maths Mastery approach. All children need a deep understanding of the mathematics they are learning in order that future learning is built upon firm foundations. With this in mind we encourage our children to develop a greater depth of understanding rather than just working on the next topic. It is important for children to really grasp how to perform a procedure in many different ways and contexts rather than just working with larger numbers.
