At South Pennine Academies, we want every student to have the best possible chance to
achieve in school. Stronger partnerships with families, local businesses, community
agencies and universities are essential as we focus on improving student outcomes.
We focus on the basic skills of mathematics as the foundation for all our learning.
Throughout the Academy, children are taught Maths using a systematic and consistent approach to ensure our children are ‘secondary ready’ by the time they leave Willowpark.
Fluency in calculations alongside the development of problem solving and reasoning skills is central to the mastery method we use to teach maths. Additional opportunities are also planned so that mathematical skills learnt are practised and applied in other areas of learning through cross-curricular topics. We follow the White Rose Maths Curriculum as the basis of our teaching of maths.
