The New Forest C of E Primary School and Nursery



At the New Forest Primary school, we believe that Mathematics is not only a key life skill but one that underpins learning across the curriculum. Our curriculum develops learning and results in the acquisition of knowledge and skills through a mastery approach.  Our aim is to give our young learners the ability to articulate their learning and their ideas but also the opportunities to apply their mathematical skills across the whole curriculum in order to prepare them for the outside world as part of their academic, spiritual and personal growth. To do this, we focus on allowing children the time to imbed fundamental Maths facts that will allow children to flourish when problem solving and digging deep into each strand. We are determined to create and nurture a life-long enthusiasm for Mathematics at our school and we value creativity as a pathway to building confident Mathematicians.



We follow the 2014 National Curriculum and our expectation is that all children are showing progress in line with national expectations. It is the responsibility of each class teacher to monitor and ensure that this progress is made. The subject leader works with each teacher to monitor this progress and to ensure that sufficient challenge is given to each child.

Our scheme of work is based upon ‘Power Maths’ which is a whole-class mastery programme, designed to spark curiosity and excitement and help children nurture confidence in maths. The scheme is aligned to the White Rose Maths progressions and schemes of learning and is written specifically for UK classrooms by leading mastery experts and is recommended by the Department of Education.

EYFS 1 and 2 follow the Mastering the Curriculum scheme alongside Power Maths to develop the initial steps in numeracy to ensure that the foundations are laid for a lifelong love of the subject.




Teachers measure the impact of the curriculum through formative and summative assessment. From this assessment teachers will adapt and change their planning according to the needs of all of the children. Subject leaders will also measure the impact of the curriculum through learning walks, pupil voice and teacher surveys. Individual pupil data, in accordance with objectives within the National Curriculum, is collected and analysed three times a year. This data is recorded on the school’s electronic data base (INSIGHT) to monitor attainment and progress.
