Changes to the Maths Curriculum

A Summary of the change to the Maths Curriculum September 2014


  1. All children should become fluent in the fundamentals of maths through varied and frequent practice.
  2. Children develop their conceptual understanding and the ability to recall facts and apply that knowledge rapidly and accurately
  3. Children will be able to reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language
  4. Children will be able to solve problems by applying their mathematics to a range of problems. They will be able to break them down into smaller steps and persevere when seeking solutions.
  5. The new curriculum is a mastery curriculum. The emphasis is on depth and challenge rather than accelerating through the content.
  6. Children who grasp concepts quickly will be challenged through new, increasingly sophisticated problems.
  7. The level of demand is greater for each year group
