Numeracy and Mathematics

Children’s learning in mathematics enables them to:

  • develop a secure understanding of the concepts, principles and processes of mathematics and apply these in different contexts, including the world of work
  • engage with more abstract mathematical concepts and develop important new kinds of thinking
  • understand the application of mathematics, its impact on our society past and present, and its potential for the future
  • develop essential numeracy skills which will allow them to participate fully in society
  • establish firm foundations for further specialist learning
  • understand that successful independent living requires financial awareness, effective money management, using schedules and other related skills
  • interpret numerical information appropriately and use it to draw conclusions, assess risk, and make reasoned evaluations and informed decisions
  • apply skills and understanding creatively and logically to solve problems, within a variety of contexts
  • appreciate how the imaginative and effective use of technologies can enhance the development of skills and concepts.

Early Numeracy – As with early Literacy, an important emphasis is placed on strategies to improve numeracy at the early years and subsequently throughout primary school through an interactive, participative approach to oral/mental mathematics activities.
