Mathematics is important in everyday life.  It is integral to all aspects of life and with this in mind St John with St Michael C.E. Primary endeavour to ensure that children develop a healthy and enthusiastic attitude towards mathematics that will stay with them. 

Mathematics helps children to make sense of the world around them through developing their ability to calculate, to reason and to solve problems.  It enables children to understand and appreciate relationships and pattern in both number and space in their everyday lives.  Through their growing knowledge and understanding, children learn to appreciate the contribution made by many cultures to the development and application of mathematics.

Staff at St John with St Michael use Lancashire's Learning and Progression Steps (LAPS), which are designed to scaffold the learning required in order to meet the expectations of the National Curriculum. The Key Learning Indicators of Performance,  in conjunction with the aims and statutory requirements set out in the National Curriculum 2014, detail the key learning in mathematics for each year group. These key learning grids for each year group can be used to provide detailed assessment information for the teacher to use to inform their future planning of next steps.
