Calculation Policy

Below is the Calculation Policy that we have adopted here at The Bishops' from the White Rose Maths Hub.
 
The guidance document outlines a suggested skills progression for the four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) across the school. The policy document gives examples of how to teach the methods, starting with concrete resources before moving children towards pictorial representations to support them in securing their abstract understanding.
 
If you have any questions about how we teach Mathematics at The Bishops' or how to support your child at home, please do not hesitate to speak to your child's class teacher or Miss Burnett, our Maths Lead.
 
Thank you.
