DBIS aims to ensure students have the tools and understanding to be able to apply their knowledge in order to solve problems, investigate and be creative.
Our curriculum is based on the National Numeracy Framework of England and operates as a ‘spiral learning curriculum’ which allows students to revisit and build upon their skills and concepts throughout the academic year.
Teachers aim to ensure learning in mathematics is fun and interactive so our students develop enthusiasm towards the subject. We recognise that students have varying abilities therefore ensure the learning is carefully differentiated to meet the needs within classes. From Year 3 to 6, students are grouped according to their ability which allows for lessons to be tailored to the specific level of those within a given class.
As our students develop their mathematical knowledge and understanding they will be exposed to an extensive range of formal and informal written calculation methods. We aim to ensure that the learning in mathematics is linked to the real world so that students can understand the importance of applying their skills in everyday situations.
