Maths at Corringham School

At the root of Mathematical learning at Corringham CE Primary School sits the Chris Quigley Essentials Curriculum.

The Essentials Curriculum ensures that the following characteristics are developed over the course of primary school learning (Y1 – Y6),

  • An understanding of the important concepts and an ability to make connections within mathematics.
  • A broad range of skills in using and applying mathematics.
  • Fluent knowledge and recall of number facts and the number system.
  • The ability to show initiative in solving problems in a wide range of contexts, including the new or unusual.
  • The ability to think independently and to persevere when faced with challenges, showing a confidence of success.
  • The ability to embrace the value of learning from mistakes and false starts.
  • The ability to reason, generalise and make sense of solutions.
  • Fluency in performing written and mental calculations and mathematical techniques.
  • A wide range of mathematical vocabulary.
  • A commitment to and passion for the subject.

The Essentials Curriculum uses Milestones for assessment at the end of Year 2, 4 and 6. This determines whether a child has understood particular concepts in enough depth within their year group.


In EYFS, we follow the White Rose scheme of work which meets the Educational Programme for Mathematics within the revised Statutory Framework for the early years foundation stage. 


In Key Stage 1 and 2, we use planning taken from Hamilton Trust. This provides a pathway of blocks to cover the National Curriculum statutory requirements. This is supplemented with teaching activities taken from White Rose to ensure that mastery and greater depth concepts are covered/taught effectively.
