Here at Birdwell we aim to deliver an inspiring and engaging mathematics curriculum which enables children to be numerate, creative, independent, inquisitive, enquiring and confident mathematicians.

Fluency gives pupils the ability to delve deeper into Maths; to develop number sense and choose the most appropriate method for the task at hand; to be able to apply a skill to multiple contexts.
