Calculation Policy

Curriculum Information
From 2012 onwards the School has developed additional material to assist pupils and parents in understanding the methods used in mathematical calculations. The Policy - as presented to parents in the first half of the autumn term - is available below.  

There are separate Presentation slide sets for each of the Lower School (Years 3 & 4) and Upper School (Years 5 & 6), and within these, for each mathematical operation:
  • Addition and Subtraction (including the overview and introduction)
  • Multiplication, and
  • Division (including Government expectations)

These may be referred to in relation to your child's homework.

Clicking on the relevant link in the table below will enable you to download the relevant section of the presentation, from where they can also be saved.
