Here at Parkwood, Foundation Stage to Year 6 use and supplement the White Rose's approach to teaching Maths. Despite using this as a guide, we do have our own calculation policy. 
We also use the guidance given by NCETM to guide progression within the subject. The documents identify the previous steps in learning they should have taken as well as the next step. Teachers are encouraged to ensure the children have taken the previous step so that they have a solid foundation on which to build:

As a school, we take children on a journey through three stages for each area of Maths. First, the children explore new learning using concrete learning experiences through the use of manipulatives. This is followed by the same concept being tackled using pictorial representations. Once the children are secure in the fundamentals of each concept, they are then expected use a more abstract approach to their learning. 

For more information, read the school's Maths Policy.

 *Please note that teachers will reorder and prioritise based on the information gained from assessments points throughout the year so that the curriculum is tailored more specifically to the needs of the children. 

In addition to White Rose Maths teaching, Year 1 and Year 2 will be teaching an additional 10 minutes of maths teaching a day designed by the NCETM to build number sense. It is fully funded by the NCETM. FS will use a blend of the NCETM Number Sense scheme and White Rose. See overviews for Number Sense below.

We know how important it is to reduce cognitive load therefore we invest in Timetables Rockstars and NumBots. The apps allow the children to rehearse their number facts. We recommended three minutes a day as practise  little and often will move the knowledge into our long term memories. We also use MyMaths for children to rehearse other areas of Maths at home. This also helps us to reduce the amount of paper being consumed by the school.
