Mathematics is a creative and highly inter-connected discipline that has been developed over centuries, providing the solution to some of history’s most intriguing problems. It is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment. A high-quality mathematics education therefore provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.

At St Giles’, we use Power Maths resources throughout the school from Reception to Year 6. Power Maths uses a Maths Mastery approach and creates consistency ensuring each child builds secure foundations before building their mathematical understanding as they progress through the school.
The Power Maths characters grow as they move through each Key Stage, sharing a range of growth-mindset characteristics that our children identify with as they continue their own Maths adventure.
