At Trinity, our vision for mathematics is for children to have a secure knowledge of mathematical facts and concepts that is embedded, deepened, and built upon as they progress from Nursery to Y6. Children will develop the skills and understanding of different types of mathematical enquiry to be able to investigate and answer questions about maths around them.

They will make links between the mathematical knowledge and skills that they are developing and applying in school to their applications in the world around them. They will know why and how this is useful and can draw on the appropriate knowledge and skills when needed.

Trinity children will develop a sense of global citizenship, understanding how mathematics can play a key role in exploring solutions for local, regional and global problems. 


At Trinity, we use the Power Maths Scheme across the school for KS1 and KS2 which is recommended by the DfE. This follows a mastery programme written by experts from UK and China and has a small steps approach to introducing new concepts. It aligns with the White Rose maths progression and schemes of learning which we also use to complement the scheme where appropriate. 

Power Maths follows the 'concrete, pictorial, abstract' approach to teaching maths and we encourage the use of practical apparatus for the introduction and reinforcement of concepts as well as mathematical language.

In line with National Curriculum’s expectation that the ‘majority of pupils will move through the programmes of study at broadly the same pace’, all children will have access to the same content. To meet the differing learning needs of the children, teachers may adjust the pace of the lesson, provide further reinforcement or greater depth, reasoning and problem solving learning opportunities.   

Teachers are skilled in adapting the lesson to meet the needs of the learner and will use diagnostic 'Hinge Questions' and 'Full Participation Techniques' to gain feedback on the children's understanding from where next steps can be identified. 


Children's fluency and recall is encouraged through our KIRF (Key Instant Recall Facts) system. Learning these key facts takes place at home as well as in school and children are challenged to demonstrate the accuracy and speed of their recall skills.

In year 4, all children nationally will be taking an online Times Table Check on all multiplication facts up to and including 12x12.

Together we inspire, through our Christian values, unique individuals who believe they can achieve more than they ever thought possible in mind, body and spirit. Through nurture and challenge, we provide a firm foundation to enable all to thrive, to lead and serve in their life long journey as local, national and global citizens.
