At Rayleigh Primary School, we aim to equip pupils with a set of mathematical tools to use to understand and change the world. These tools include logical reasoning, problem-solving skills, as well as the ability to think in abstract ways.
We aim to provide a rich and varied context for pupils to acquire, develop and apply a broad range of knowledge, understanding and skills, and our curriculum will enable pupils to think creatively and critically and to solve problems. We believe mathematics is important in everyday life, in employment, science and technology, medicine, the economy and in public decision making.
Our aim is to provide mathematical education which transcends cultural boundaries and links to all other areas of the curriculum, in particular creativity.
