# Maths

This year we are using a new Maths scheme called Power Maths.  The scheme empowers every child to understand and succeed by developing a growth mindset approach (a ‘can do’ attitude) to maths. Power Maths is a mastery programme that deepens understanding of mathematical concepts by sparking inquisitiveness, confidence and enthusiasm.
