# MATHEMATICS

Maths is one of the best subjects to develop your analytical, research and problem solving skills. Not only will maths give you the knowledge to tackle scientific, mechanical, coding and abstract problems, it will also help you develop logic to tackle everyday issues like planning projects, managing budgets and even debating effectively.

Our goal is confident, happy children who enjoy mathematics and think independently. We aim for Leigh Academy Tonbridge students to achieve the confidence to use mathematics in everyday life, solve problems, and think logically, leaving school with the qualifications needed for their next stage in life.

Our curriculum follows the National Curriculum and is adapted from the White Rose Maths Scheme. We are working towards a shared understanding of the curriculum through teachers discussing and refining both the sequence of concepts and the details of lessons.
