Here at Markeaton Primary School, our philosophy is to enable each child to enjoy Mathematics and to appreciate its value in everyday life.  We aim to foster a learning environment in which all pupils are provided with experiences that lead to a consistently high level of achievement in Mathematics. We believe that competence with calculations is essential, but that Mathematics is so much more!

    In order to help us fulfil these goals we have decided to adopt the ‘Singapore approach’ to teaching Mathematics. Singapore has been a top performing nation in Mathematics for a number of years now, with their approach proven to have a positive impact in Primary, Secondary and beyond.

    This approach is based on the premise that every child can master an understanding and love of maths with the right kind of teaching and support.  It is a child-centred, problem solving approach that is both fun to learn and fun to teach!  It provides world-class textbooks, teaching resources and support for children in order to develop a life-long love of learning.
