Mathematics

To assist you in understanding how mathematics is taught within Gilmorton Chandler C of E Primary School we have set out links below to the various elements of the Calculation Policy that we use.

The Calculation Policy was devised by a group of Specialist Leaders in Education working for the Affinity Teaching Schools Alliance and is based upon current governmental guidance as well as current good practice. It sets out the methods we use when tackling the range of mathematical content that children will come across in school.

We hope that you find the information below helpful and that it assists you in supporting your children’s mathematical development.
