The calculation policy is developed with all members of staff to demonstrate methods that the children will use for the different age groups. It begins by using apparatus and picture based methods to formal written methods. The calculation policy ensures that maths is taught in a consistent way throughout school so that the children can build on their prior learning. To be able to solve problems, the children will need to be confident in the methods that they use. We have split our policy into two parts: written methods and different representations (concrete, pictorial and abstract).
