Mathematics helps us to make sense of our world. It is a powerful, universal language used to explain, predict and represent events and tackle everyday problems. Mathematics is of central importance to our modern society. It is an essential part of everyone’s daily life and critical to science, technology, finance and engineering. Mathematics is necessary for any employment or independent life.

At TGSA we aim not only to prepare our children for the next stage of their education, but also to lay the foundations for successful lives after school. Our aim is to prepare our children for the jobs of tomorrow, which will require greater mathematical skills than in the past, including thinking mathematically in order to use technology that doesn’t yet exist.

Resources for Parents

At Tudor Grange Samworth Academy, we use the award winning White Rose Maths schemes of learning.

Primary pupils will explore concepts using concrete materials, before progressing to pictorial and, finally, abstract (the CPA approach).

Children work collaboratively, in mixed ability groups, to support each other in mastering key concepts. Higher attaining pupils can quickly move onto ‘mastering’, while others have the opportunity to really grasp the learning.
