Mathematics

At Castledon School the National Curriculum for Mathematics is delivered at a pace and level suited to the needs of each individual. A bespoke curriculum ensures that every pupil is allowed to meet their Potential.

Mathematics should be fun and so the combination of practical activities, investigations and games presented along with access to a rich bank of exciting resources means everyone really looks forward to their lessons! Additionally, an emphasis is placed on real life mathematics embracing our motto ‘Learn to Live’ and ensuring students can apply the skills they have learnt in the wider community.  Practical activities and concrete apparatus are used to support understanding and help make links in learning. With this in mind, we have introduced the Numicon approach and have seen pupils make rapid progress as a result.
