Mathematics: Intent, Implementation and the Impact



At Jubilee Primary School, we believe that an outstanding Mathematics curriculum provides the foundation on which pupils can develop their critical understanding, so that they can explore methodically, reason logically and make connections across all areas of the curriculum. This is aligned closely to our vision, which fosters a love for learning, equips pupils to live life skilfully and creates positive memories. Our teaching in Mathematics is based on the National Curriculum.


National Curriculum Intent:

The National Curriculum for Mathematics intends to ensure that all pupils:

  • become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately.
  • reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry; conjecturing relationships and generalisations; and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language.
  • can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication; including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.



At Jubilee Primary School, we incorporate sustained levels of challenge through varied and high quality activities with a focus on fluency, reasoning and problem solving. Using the mastery approach to Mathematics, pupils are required to explore Mathematics in depth, using mathematical vocabulary and language to reason and explain their workings.


From EYFS through to Year 6, we use the Power Maths programme alongside materials from NCTEM and White Rose to further develop reasoning and problem solving skills. A key focus is the use of language in our stem sentences and generalisations. This mastery approach is implemented through quality first teaching using a wide range of resources, where pupils are taught to show their workings in a concrete, pictorial and abstract form.  


The expectation is that the majority of pupils at Jubilee Primary School will move through the programmes of study at broadly the same pace, with same day interventions and focused small group support, enabling pupils to make progress and to close gaps in their understanding. For a small percentage of pupils who are working significantly below their peers, a tailored programme of study is followed, which enables them to make progress from their starting points using a variety of mastery resources.




The impact of our Mathematics curriculum is evidenced in the knowledge and skills that the pupils acquire and through pupil voice. At Jubilee Primary School, pupils know how and why Mathematics is used in the outside world and in the workplace. Mathematical concepts and skills are mastered when a child is able to show it in multiple ways, using mathematical language to explain their ideas and can independently apply the new concept to new problems in unfamiliar situations.


With a focus on linguistic skills, pupils at Jubilee Primary School are able to use acquired language in Mathematics lessons and across the curriculum.


Through discussion and feedback, children are able to articulate with confidence the context in which Mathematics is being taught and how this relates to real-life purposes, alongside their enthusiasm and love for Mathematics.
