We aim to support children to achieve economic well-being and equip them with a range of computational skills and the ability to solve problems in a variety of contexts.


The national curriculum for mathematics aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • Become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including the varied and regular practice of increasingly complex problems over time.
  • Reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, understanding relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language.
  • Can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.



Mathletics is an online resource that helps children to enjoy maths and improve their results. Every student at Pakeman receives a login card so they can access mathletics at home. Please encourage your child to use mathletics and improve their maths skills.

Intervention Groups

In all our classrooms at St Paul's we have amazing teaching assistants who support children with their learning. Children who have gaps in their knowledge are supported through our intervention groups in each phase.

Times Tables

We expect all children at St Paul's to have a secure grasp of the multiplication tables. Just like learning to walk before you can run, learning multiplication and memorising the times tables are building blocks for other maths topics taught in school - higher learning such as division, long multiplication, fractions and algebra. Students who do not memorise the times tables will find these levels of maths much more difficult than they need to be. Students who have not mastered their tables will very often fall behind in maths (and other subjects that use maths) and begin to lose confidence. We ask parents for support in helping their children to learn the multiplication tables.

Below are some useful links to help your child practise their times tables.
