Our approach to teaching Mathematics here at Hazlegrove is based on a bias towards child-centred education. We believe that every child is different and needs to be taught and stimulated in a different way.
In a world that is constantly changing, a world where we are all racing to keep up, what we really need is children that can confidently face new challenges without fear or self-doubt. The world needs proactive and imaginative problem solvers who possess both the skills and the mental versatility to interpret new and unfamiliar problems quickly and then work independently and in small groups towards meaningful and robust solutions.
We are passionate about developing practical and effective problem solving skills in the maths department and constantly looking for new and exciting ways to emphasize the real world applications and the relevance of the techniques the children are learning.
Of course not every child finds maths easy but we believe that with the right support and encouragement every children can exceed their own expectations, realise their potential and have a great deal of fun along the way.
