St Antony's

Catholic Primary School

God is at the heart of our school





At St Antony’s Primary School, we believe that mathematics equips pupils with a uniquely powerful set of tools, and develops an ability to calculate, reason and solve problems. It enables children to understand and appreciate relationships and patterns in both number and space in their everyday lives. We believe that maths should be purposeful, and children are made aware of its importance in real-life contexts.


Our approach to teaching and learning mathematics


Our Maths Curriculum presents pupils with rich and enjoyable experiences enabling them to secure essential knowledge and skills whilst also providing them with many opportunities to use and apply their mathematical expertise across the curriculum, when solving real life problems and mathematical investigations.


At St. Antony’s we use White Rose materials to plan and deliver high quality mathematics lessons to our children. We are dedicated to enabling our children to achieve academic mastery in mathematics and we do so using a Concrete – Pictorial – Abstract approach to learning mathematics.


This enables our children to build solid foundations in their understanding of mathematics, which is vital to master the subject.


Our calculation policy shows in detail how we use this sequence to develop the four operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.

Primary Maths Challenge

The Primary Mathematics Challenge is a fun and exciting mathematical Challenge aimed at pupils in years 5 and 6 . 

The PMC is designed to make pupils think outside the box. The questions asked are not necessarily subjects that have been covered in the curriculum, but the questions can create a great starting point and lead to discussions later in the year. The questions are not heavily reliant on formal mathematical knowledge but can be solved by logical reasoning.


This year the test was taken by all our Year 5 pupils. Huge congratulations to all the children who took part! Each and every one embraced the challenge despite it being tough. It was great to see a such a buzz of excitement created by Mathematics!
