Curriculum Statement


At Mere School we believe all our children have the right to succeed, to have high aspirations for their future lives and develop who they are in a respectful and caring environment. Our school ethos is firmly rooted in our school vision - 'We enjoy - we learn - we achieve'. 

At Mere School we believe that mathematics is essential to every day life, critical to science, technology and engineering and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment. A high-quality mathematics education provides the  foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject. 

In line with the 2014 National Curriculum, we aim to ensure that all our pupils become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics; to reason mathematically and to solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of problems.
