At St Paul's we aim to ensure all our children  become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics. We encourage them to develop independent reasoning and problem-solving skills. The children can continue to consolidate their learning at home as we provide each of our children with access to Mathletics (an online site).  
 
"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."
