Sutton Valence Primary School


Our mission is to ensure we all participate in the constant quest of knowledge, learning and adventure so that each individual can build upon their core strengths to aspire to make a real difference.

Maths Problem Solving

The National Curriculum for Maths ensures pupils gain 'Mastery'  in all areas of Maths and then  are given opportunites to progress further with 'Greater Depth'.

At Sutton Valence Primary School we aim to develop our pupil's skills in problem solving and reasoning and being confident to talk about maths. Teachers make links to everyday contexts and encourage pupils to use manipulatives to support their understanding and reasoning.


We are currently encouraging pupils to see that Maths is all around us. The picture below has a wealth of mathematical reasoning opportunities - can you see them?
