Maths and Financial Education

Mathematics is a creative and highly interconnected 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. 

At Cheam Fields, we provide a high-quality mathematics education that 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. We provide pupils with a deep understanding of the subject through our concrete, pictorial and abstract approach.

We follow the Maths-No Problem! scheme of work. We also incorporate high-quality mathematical resources from other providers into our lessons to provide children with opportunities to reason and problem solve, including NCETM and White Rose.

Financial Education

At Cheam Fields we foster an awareness of the crucial nature finance plays in everyday life. Our ambition is to create a culture where our children can understand and respect the value of money whilst making sensible financial choices. 

Within our curriculum offer, we will bring our finance lessons to life within many subject areas by linking financial learning to real life contexts, adapting teaching to the ever-changing financial climate the children grow up in. 

Learning will be delivered alongside our commitment to the LEO Pupil Outcomes by developing children’s financial literacy skills to become leaders and life-long learners. Furthermore, we want to equip children with the awareness that having and spending money is not the root of all happiness. 

We want to prepare our children to have a brighter financial future with an informed mind-set towards finance, leading to fulfilled, happy and purposeful lives.
