Primary Mathematics Curriculum

The new Primary Mathematics Curriculum is available online at

The aim of the new Primary Mathematics Curriculum is that children see maths as important and useful to their everyday lives.

It is essential that parents/guardians are made aware of the changes to the curriculum that have taken place to date and what will be happening over the years to come. In this regard the Department, in collaboration with the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NCCA), the National Council for Special Education (NCSE) and the Professional Development for Teachers (PDST), has developed a leaflet which is designed to introduce these changes and encourage parent/guardians to engage in the future consultations seeking feedback on the draft curriculum areas and subjects of the new curriculum.
