At St Mary and St Michael Catholic Primary School, we place our children at the heart of everything we do and offer them an engaging Maths curriculum where every child has the right to high quality teaching and learning opportunities that help them develop essential mental and written maths skills. 


Our aim is to engender an enjoyment of mathematics, enabling our children to gain a secure and deep understanding of fundamental mathematical concepts and procedures in preparation for Key stage 3 and beyond. We want our children to see the mathematics that surrounds them every day and enjoy developing vital life skills in this subject
