We want all children by the time they leave Churchfields Junior School to not only be numerate, but to be able to transfer their mathematical skills to other curricular areas and into everyday life. By being *numerate* we are referring to an individual’s abilities to think and react mathematically; to apply number sense to everyday situations encountered and to reasoning, using number knowledge acquired.

We want to impart to our children that Mathematics is not confined to just acquiring mathematical skills, but most importantly it is about fostering inquiring minds, inciting enthusiasm and valuing curiosity.
