Mathematics is taught through a variety of fun, purposeful interactive and child centered activities, both as stand alone lessons and as an integral part of play. Children from Years 1 and 2 have clearly set out learning objectives for maths as outlined in the  National Curriculum.

As schools we are on a journey to Maths Mastery with the Sussex Maths Hub. ​Maths Mastery is defined by the NCETM as 'pupils acquiring a deep, long-term, secure and adaptable understanding of the subject’. ​
The phrase 'teaching for mastery' describes the elements of classroom practice and school organisation that combine to give pupils the best chances of mastering maths. ​

At Hertford Schools we endeavor to: ​

-develop confident mathematicians who can talk about their learning using key vocabulary and stem sentences

-develop independent mathematicians who can select resources to support their mathematical thinking ​

-provide children with a solid understanding of key mathematical concepts ​

-provide challenge to take children’s understanding deeper
