Calculations Policy

Calculations Policy
This White Rose Maths calculation policy has been developed and agreed using the National Curriculum objectives and methods. At Bayton CE Primary School we recognise that mathematics can only be used effectively when the user understands the tool, and uses it to understand where then children have come from, and where they are going to next. With the WRM calculation policy, we can be confident throughout school, that the hard work we all put into teaching the children each year to calculate, will be consolidated and extended the following year. By agreeing on the use of strategies and mathematical language the children will be taught in a consistent way in all classes, developing their understanding as they progress through school. As a result, all children will have the necessary strategies and scaffolding to enable them to solve mathematical problems. Children will then be encouraged to use the calculation strategies they are secure with, whether done mentally or using pencil and paper methods.
