How do we teach safeguarding and wellbeing through mathematics?

In mathematics, our children:

  • Develop resilience and perseverance to keep trying and apply their knowledge through practise, 
  • Increase their own self-esteem and achieve their personal best by not comparing themselves to others, 
  • Solve problems using the knowledge that they already have, 
  • Understand that it is positive to make mistakes and learn from them,
  • Use equipment safely,
  • Support peers who are struggling in a sensitive way.
