Archbishop Cranmer CofE Primary Academy Striving for life in all its fullness. John 10: 10


Mathematics at Archbishop Cranmer C.of E


“Confidence in numeracy and other mathematical skills is a precondition of success across the national curriculum.”


The new National Curriculum for Maths aims to ensure all pupils become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and are able 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 routine and non routine problems, breaking them down into a series of simpler steps and persevering.

Making it Ours...


Teachers use the 'Fluency in Maths' Collins Scheme for their basic maths provision. In accordance with our 'Triangle' approach, this is enriched in a variety of ways including through:


Maths Missions - linking maths to topic work to make it relevant and meaningful; this is evidenced in our maths displays, work and maths bodies in KS1 and KS2.


Our Maths Investigative Bear - when the bear comes to visit a class, pupils are expected to plan  investigative maths challenges linked to a particular problem or area...


Pupils are challenged in maths in a variety of ways, this could be homework (See head teacher's challenge) through 'non negotiables', through top down objectives and our most able access the year above's maths curriculum where appropriate.


From year 5, pupils are selected to work towards the L6 objectives. Last year a governor took a Booster group for the children and we successfully gained 2 L6!!


The IMPACT of our creative and rigorous approach to maths meant that last year:

all pupils in KS1 made better than expected progress with 89% of pupils in year 2 making 6+psp.

In year 6, 71% of pupils made 5+ psp from the previous summer with 50% of those making 6+psp.
