At St Joseph's School, we support students to become numerate by developing the knowledge and skills to use mathematics confidently across all learning areas.
Our students are encouraged to recognise mathematics in their everyday lives and they are explicitly taught a wide range of mathematical knowledge and skills.
They develop their mathematical knowledge and understanding by learning in context about the world around them. This knowledge is then integrated into other subject areas, which enables them to consolidate their wider learning.
Maths is an important lifelong skill. Students who are highly numerate will become successful learners at school and in their lives beyond school, giving them the attitudes and skills necessary for them to become active participants in their family, community and in the workforce.
