Maths Mastery at Whitestone
We want our children to become confident mathematicians with a sense of enjoyment, curiosity for Maths and thirst for challenge. At Whitestone we believe all children have the capability to become Masters at Maths. This thinking is called a "growth mindset" which enables them to unlock their unlimited Maths potential. Through the 5 key principles of Mastery our children develop a deeper understanding of Maths and established reasoning skills. We strive to enable all pupils to acquire a secure, fluent and confident grasp of the key concepts and vocabulary with the ability to apply their key skills.
Mathematics is a creative and highly inter-connected discipline that has been developed over centuries, providing the solution to some of history’s most intriguing problems. It is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment. A high-quality mathematics education therefore provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.
