Supporting Maths


Here at Dereham Junior Academy, we are proud of how we teach maths. We believe that every child can succeed in maths and that it is the gateway to understanding the world around us. We believe that, by using resources and equipment in our lessons and by showing children that mistakes aid learning, we will produce the very best mathematicians who can complete complex calculations and understand the mechanics behind them too.

Over the next year, we really want to engage with parents and show you that maths is not the scary, hard, boring subject that it can sometimes be portrayed as being.

We would like to do this by:

  • Pointing you towards great games and apps that can help your children learn
  • Showing you videos of how we teach the four main calculations
  • Bringing you into school to see our maths lessons in action
  • Offering an open evening that will, hopefully, make you feel more confident in helping your children in maths

We would also like your help. Are there any ways in which we can better help you or your child? If there are, please let us know by completing the box below.
