At Newton Prep we aim to inspire a love of Mathematics in every child. We want every child to look forward to their Maths lessons and to achieve the highest standard that they possibly can.
We have high expectations of our pupils and therefore teach our pupils the expected skills one year ahead of the National Curriculum. To do this, we focus on developing our pupils’ key number skills at an early age, and teach them how to apply these to different problem-solving scenarios in a fun and stimulating way, with lots of games, investigations and extension activities for the children to explore.
The children have the opportunity to take part in national competitions, such as the Primary Maths Challenge, and enjoy regular visits from the Puzzle Company. In school, there are workshops designed to extend our most able children and older pupils work with our younger children to help them to develop as mathematicians. Newton Prep pupils typically love Maths and thrive in the challenging but supportive environment that we provide.
