Mathematics at Heathbrook

At Heathbrook, we are committed to ensuring that all of our pupils become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, are able to reason mathematically and can solve problems by applying their knowledge in a range of contexts.

We are dedicated to enabling children to recognise the importance of mathematics in the wider world so that they are able to use their mathematical skills and knowledge confidently in a variety of situations in their lives. We want all children to enjoy mathematics and to develop a deep and sustained conceptual understanding so that they can experience success in the subject.  We aim for pupils to achieve mastery of mathematics by acquiring a deep, long-term, secure and adaptable understanding of the subject.  We seek to develop children’s curiosity about the subject, as well as an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics.
