Castlefort Junior Mixed and Infant School

Inspiring Bright Futures Together


Mathematics Intent, Implementation and Impact

At Castlefort, we have adopted the nationally recognised White Rose Maths approach to teaching Mathematics. WRM have developed a scheme where children develop a deep understanding, confidence and competence in mathematics. A culture of strong, secure learning and real progress is apparent at Castlefort through using this approach to teaching and learning. Children at Castlefort are becoming happy, resilient mathematicians, whilst developing their independence and reflective thinking skills. We are developing a culture of pupils who are positive about mathematics and want to achieve their very best! 


Mathematics at Castlefort is taught through the following broad areas:


  • Place Value
  • Addition & Subtraction
  • Multiplication & Division
  • Fractions, Decimals and Percentages
  • Ratio and Proportion
  • Algebra
  • Measurement
  • Geometry
  • Statistics



To support your child with home learning tasks, please see the addition, subtraction, multiplication and division calculation policies below.

Times Tables Rock Stars


At Castlefort, every child from Year 1-6 has a TT Rock Stars account to use both in and out of school. TT Rock Stars is a carefully sequenced programme of daily times tables practice. The format allows children to conquer the times table facts that they are most unsure on and successfully increase their speed of recall. Can your child become a 'Rock Hero' by answering questions in under 1 second?


The school has achieved the Basic Skills National Quality Mark in recognition of its provision for mathematics - Basic Skills are at the heart of teaching and learning at Castlefort JMI School, as it is seen to be the foundation of unlocking the rest of the curriculum for the pupils.

If you want further information about the curriculum content your child is covering please call the school office to arrange an appointment to see the subject leader.
