Our Maths Curriculum

At Highfield Academy, we strongly believe in ensuring children gain a deeper understanding of mathematics.

All teachers plan using the white rose hub long term plan to ensure that each year group follows the curriculum for its year group. All years follow the white rose hub medium term plans. Please click the link below:

Maths is taught in mixed ability groups in Key Stage 1 but there is targeted ability grouping in year 3, 4, 5 and 6. Interventions and pre-teaching are carefully planned to support children of all abilities.
