At Northfield, we strive for children to have:
At Northfield, we love bar models, so we have made one to represent the elements of our learning in maths. All these elements add together to make a mathematician at Northfield.
At Northfield Primary School, we have adopted the White Rose approach to the teaching of mathematics, here is a section from their website that really embodies why we think it is the best approach for the children of our school.
Together, we’re building a whole new culture of deep understanding, confidence and competence in maths – a culture that produces strong, secure learning and real progress. No matter what their starting points, we help teachers and learners everywhere to achieve excellence.
As we prove this to pupils and teachers alike, we’re shaping assured, happy and resilient mathematicians who relish the challenge of maths. They become independent, reflective thinkers, whose skills not only liberate them in maths but also support them across the curriculum.
We’re committed to working together to be and give the very best, and to make a difference to every pupil.
