Maths Strategy

At Belmont, we believe you can never stop getting better. As such, we will be making this academic year our Year of Maths. It is our aim to improve outcomes in Maths for all of our pupils and to foster a love of number and problem solving. We will be launching our new Calculation Policy this term and we hope that parents will join us for a number of workshops and curriculum events over the coming months, as well as supporting Maths learning at home.
