Monega Primary School


The mathematics teaching at Monega Primary School is geared towards enabling each pupil to develop within their capabilities; not only the mathematics skills and understanding required for later life, but also 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 are continually aiming to raise the standards of achievement of the pupils in Monega Primary School.


Cross-Curricular Links


Mathematics is taught mainly as a separate subject but every effort is made to link maths with other areas of the curriculum. We try and identify the mathematical possibilities across the curriculum at the planning stage. We also draw children's attention to the links between maths and other curricular work so children see that maths is not an isolated subject.
