*NEW* Maths Awards – Updated September 2016 for the new National Curriculum

Each of the seven maths award booklets can be viewed/downloaded here:

Red – Orange – Yellow – Green – Blue – Indigo – Violet

Children should practice the Maths from the appropriate booklet and then ask their class teacher to test them when they feel ready.


The comment that we most often hear from parents is: “You don’t teach maths like they did when I was at school!” To help you help your children here is our Four Rules Policy explaining how we teach mathematics across the school.

These documents are shortly to be replaced by a single updated policy.

– Four Rules Policy for Reception, Year 1 & Year 2

– Four Rules Policy for Year 3 & Year 4

– Four Rules Policy for Years 5 & Year 6


The first 8 documents below (“Helping With Maths At Home…”) are designed to be printed out and folded into a booklet rather than looked at online.

Please note: Reference to specific year-groups in these booklets is as guidance only and gives information for an ‘average’ child. In reality there are very few ‘average’ children and you will probably also find useful the booklets for above and below your child’s year group. These are also being reviewed in light of the new National Curriculum.
