Wellfield Junior School

At Wellfield Junior School we care, learn and succeed together


Children’s chances of succeeding in education and life will be maximised if they develop deep and lasting procedural and conceptual mathematical understanding. (National Centre for the Excellence of Teaching in Mathematics).


Mathematics is a creative and highly inter-connected discipline that has been developed over centuries, providing the solution to some of history’s most intriguing problems. It is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment. (National Curriculum, 2014).


[The universe] cannot be read until we have learnt the language and become familiar with the characters in which it is written. It is written in mathematical language, and the letters are triangles, circles and other geometrical figures, without which means it is humanly impossible to comprehend a single word. (Galileo Galilei)


At Wellfield Junior School, we believe that children deserve to have access to high quality mathematics teaching to further their life chances as it underpins so much of our lives.


In addition, we believe that mathematics has a fascination of its own for some people – including our staff!  The discovery of the mathematically generated ideas, working systematically, spotting patterns, finding all possibilities and making links gives pleasure to many children and adults and we seek to foster this where we can.  Appreciating maths in this way can bring another dimension to understanding and marvelling at the world in which we live.


Full details of our intent, implementation and assessment of impact can be found in our policy. A summary of key principles can be found in the one page policy summary document. 


Furthermore, you can find a summary of the whole curriculum in the "Maths Curriculum Summary' document whilst a progression of learning objectives for each maths topic can be found in the progression grids. The Long Term Plan shows broadly what topic each year group is learning at any given time. There is also a section containing some tips for how to help at home. 


Naturally, if you have any questions regarding maths at Wellfield Junior School, please contact your child's teacher or Mr Hilton.
