Subject Leadership 

Mrs Helen Bullen



At St. Paul’s we aim to provide every child, regardless of their ability, a high quality Mathematics curriculum that links to life in the real world and can be applied to their future lives. We will ensure children have the tools and strategies to reason mathematically and to solve problems, that can be applied to a wide range of problems and situations with confidence. We hope to instil perseverance, resilience and flexible thinking and to encourage our pupils to have a sense of pride and achievement when they have been able to find the solution to a problem.

Yearly Overview

Times Tables Badge Initiative


We are launching a new Times Tables Badge initiative in school, where the children in Year's 2- 6 will have the opportunity to earn badges when they know each of their times tables off by heart. Read the letter below for more details. 


We can't wait to see the children proudly wearing all their badges on their jumpers!

Maths Week England Escape Room

During Maths Week England, Year 6 completed an escape room based around The Gold Bullion Heist. It was quite challenging, but they were all ‘Brave Bananas’ and showed fantastic perseverance to solve the problem. Well done Year 6! 

Where’s the Maths in that?

As part of Maths Week England, we have been thinking about how Maths is all around us and not just in the classroom. We spent some time looking at images of everyday things and situations and finding the Maths in them. 

Using Practical Equipment in Maths

The children really enjoyed being playground marking designers as part of our Maths day. Here are some of the exciting things the different classes got up to.

Start children off on the way they should go and even when they are old they will not turn from it.
