"Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all"



At Newbold Church of England Primary School (NCS), mathematics equips pupils with a uniquely powerful set of tools to understand and change the world.  These tools include logical reasoning, problem solving skills, and the ability to think in abstract ways.  Our wish is for our pupils to use these tools and experiences long after they have left NCS, to enable them to go further in their academic pursuits, and to use mathematics with confidence in their everyday lives. 

Our aim is for mathematics to be taught as part of a rich and progressive curriculum, where we plan and sequence mathematical lessons carefully, to build upon previous learning and secure new learning successfully.  At the heart of our teaching is a desire to develop a pupil's love of the subject, to inspire, stimulate and achieve.  We place great value on skills of mathematical fluency, reasoning, perseverance and resilience, when developing a pupil's knowledge and understanding of mathematics.
