Welcome to the Dunkirk Primary School maths page! Here at Dunkirk we LOVE all things maths! We are committed to creating lifelong mathematicians who can achieve whatever they want in life. Whether they want to be an astronaut, footballer, builder or whatever their dream job may be, we passionately believe that maths should not be a barrier. We use the Powermaths White Rose Edition scheme in our maths teaching from EYFS all the way up to Year 6.

If taught ideas are to be understood deeply, they must not merely be passively received but must be worked on by the student: thought about, reasoned with and discussed with others. We endeavour to make this a reality and have a long term partnership with a school in Finland, working together to ensure that we provide MATHS FOR ALL! By sharing our knowledge, experience and strategies, we can ensure that we provide the best curriculum possible for every single one of our pupils.

We hope you are as excited about your child's Maths learning journey as we are! If you need any help in supporting your child at home, or you would just like to know more about Maths at Dunkirk please feel free to talk to your class teacher!
