At St Dunstan's we believe Maths is an important skill which runs throughout life, from acquiring and developing skills as a child to using them as an adult at work and home.
Mathematics also provides the material and means for creating new and imaginative worlds to explore. In turn, enhancing the development of analysis and communication of information and ideas, and the process to tackle a range of practical tasks and real life problems. At St Dunstan’s, we endeavour to develop each pupil individually and personally, to promote enthusiasm, confidence and enjoyment of mathematics itself, and in doing so help children to appreciate the part mathematics has played in the development of science, technology and our civilisation and the contribution made by many cultures to the progression and application of mathematics. Mathematics is a vital aspect of the school curriculum, through this; we aim to make each child aware that mathematics provides a powerful means of communication and reasoning.
