Bishop Pursglove C of E Primary School

Reach Higher, Think Deeper, Love Wider


At Bishop Pursglove, Mathematics equips pupils with a uniquely powerful set of tools to understand and change the world.  Mathematics teaches children to logically reason, solve problems and think in abstract ways. Our ambitious aim is to develop a Curriculum that builds sequentially, and allows pupils to achieve through practical, real life contexts. In addition, our wish is for our pupils to use these mathematical tools and experiences long after they have left Bishop Pursglove, to enable them to go further in their academic pursuits, and to use Mathematics with confidence in their everyday lives. 





At Bishop Pursglove, we also aim to facilitate our children's SMSC development through Mathematics in the following ways:


  • By helping to capture those moments of joy and wonder when a child solves a problem for the first time or sees hidden connections.
  • Through placing great emphasis on how logical reasoning can be used in Mathematics and the wider world thus equipping our children with the confidence to question, investigate, prove and explain.
  • By making our children aware of the Mathematical excellence in our world and it's wider contribution in society.


Through laying these early foundations of Mathematical understanding, we want our children to apply these skills to a positive future - one in which they feel empowered to contribute to a better and future society.
