Mathematics Calculation Policy
Please find below our school calculation policy for each of the four operations. Each policy covers both the mental and written strategies taught in each year group. Whilst the documents show the strategies used across all year groups to enable you to see how children will progress, please focus on the strategies used in your child’s current year group (and where appropriate, the previous year group). The calculation policy has been designed to develop children’s conceptual understanding of each operation and as such we ask that children are not taught strategies which are used by children further up the school. PLEASE NOTE THAT THESE POLICIES ARE CURRENTLY UNDER REVIEW AND REVISIONS, REFLECTING OUR ADOPTION OF A ‘TEACHING FOR MASTERY’ and ‘CPA’ APPROACH, WILL BE PUBLISHED ON THE SCHOOL WEBSITE SHORTLY.
