At St. Ambrose Catholic Primary School, the aims of our maths curriculum are: 

To develop fluency in the fundamentals of mathematics.

To reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language.

To solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems.
