Calculation Policy

The following document breaks down the four main calculating operations that are taught across the primary years (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division). In each year group you will see the concrete, pictorial and abstract steps through which children become confident and competent at dealing with number and calculation problems. These strategies are aided and underpinned by good recall of number facts such as number bonds and times tables.
