We also intend to give each child the self-confidence and resilience to reach their full potential and develop a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.
We want our pupils who grasp concepts rapidly to be challenged through being offered rich and sophisticated problems before any acceleration through new content. Pupils who are not sufficiently fluent with earlier material will consolidate their understanding before moving on.
At Newfield we believe that mathematical talk is essential for pupils to present mathematical justifications, arguments or proof. Pupils will build secure foundations in mathematics by developing their mathematical vocabulary and using it in discussions to deepen their knowledge and understanding and remedy their misconceptions.
Pupils will also apply their mathematical knowledge to science and other subjects where opportunities arise.
