Maths Calculation Policy
This calculation policy was developed by a working party of Maths SLEs within Affinity Teaching School Alliance and from across Discovery Schools Academy Trust. It is based on the resources produced by the NCETM and much of it is informed by involvement in NCETM's Professional Development Lead training. It also brings together some resources from the National Strategies particularly in the use of models and images. Progression within each area of calculation follows the programme of study in the 2014 National Curriculum with particular reference to Appendix 1.
This is an editable document as it is an expectation that school's personalise the policy according to the needs of their school. It is important that this policy is discussed and developed further with all staff. They should have as much ownership and understanding of the policy content as possible. Other examples and hyperlinks can be added to ensure that it is a document that can build teacher's subject knowledge as well as developing an understanding of progression within the areas of calculation.
It is expected that this is a electronic policy and it is not designed to be printed.Download New Maths Calculation Policy
Getting Started – Making the Most of this Calculation Policy
This is an editable document and it is expected that schools will personalise the policy according to their needs. It is important that this policy is discussed and developed further with all staff. They should have as much ownership and understanding of the policy content as possible.
After downloading the policy, it is recommended that you right click on the zip file and ‘extract all’, so that the hyperlinks will work properly. The policy can then be navigated by opening the relevant PowerPoint (e.g. subtraction years 1-3), showing it as a slideshow, and using the second slide as a homepage. Extra guidance can then be found by using the hyperlinks, as shown on this diagram.Download Getting Started Guide
