  • Developing, maintaining and improving standards in numeracy and mathematical skills across the school.
  • Ensuring consistency of practice, including methods, vocabulary, notation etc.
  • Finding areas for collaboration between subjects.
  • Assisting the transfer of students’ knowledge, skills and understanding between subjects.
