Our vision

At Harlesden Primary School, we aim to develop in children;

  • A positive attitude to mathematics as an interesting and valuable subject.

  • An understanding of mathematics through a process of inquiry, reasoning and problem-solving.

  • A range of learning strategies: working both cooperatively, collaboratively and independently.

  • Confidence in mathematics where children can express ideas fluently and talk about the subject using mathematical language.

  • An understanding of the importance of mathematics in everyday life.

At Harlesden Primary we follow the White Rose Mathematics Mastery programmes of study, which ensures continuity and progression in the teaching of mathematics.

Aims and Objectives: 

The national curriculum for mathematics aims to ensure that all pupils: 

  • become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately. 

  • reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification, or proof using mathematical language 

  • can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions. (New National Curriculum July 2014) 


At Harlesden Primary School the teaching of maths is geared towards enabling each child to develop their learning and achieve their full potential. We endeavour to not only develop the mathematics skills and understanding required for later life, but also to foster an enthusiasm and fascination about maths itself. We aim to increase pupil confidence in maths so they are able to express themselves and their ideas using the language of maths with assurance. We want the children to see mathematics as being relevant to their world and applicable to everyday life as well as being something that they will need as they move on through their school life and ultimately to the world of employment.
