Welcome to Maths at Foxes Piece School
The Mathematics curriculum at Foxes Piece School enables children to build on prior learning and develop confidence in a range of topics. The children are encouraged to explore and use resilience in their learning.

Our curriculum provides the children with the opportunity to :
The expectation is that the majority of pupils will move through the programmes of study at broadly the same pace. However, decisions about when to progress are always based on the security of pupils’ understanding and their readiness to progress to the next stage.

Those who are not sufficiently fluent with earlier material will need to consolidate their understanding through additional practice, before moving on. We aim to provide both in exciting and rewarding methods.
At Foxes Piece we offer extra-curricular clubs throughout the year which provide children with the opportunity to further their enjoyment and understanding in Mathematics. The whole school also celebrates Mathematics with ‘Mad Maths Day’ which takes place half termly. The children take part in a range of exciting and enriching activities to further their confidence and understanding in Maths.
