Mathematics is a crucial part of everyday life and plays a vital role in many jobs. It is also essential to science, technology and engineering, and there is a huge demand for mathematical specialists. It is therefore fundamentally important to ensure that all pupils have the best possible mathematics education. They need to understand the mathematics they learn so they can be creative in solving problems, as well as being confident and fluent in developing and using the mathematical skills so valued in the world of industry and higher education.
We believe that with high quality teaching and learning all students can achieve in Maths. Lessons are structured to ensure challenge and differentiation is achieved through depth, not speed. A Mastery approach means that learning is sufficiently embedded, deep, connected, and fluent in order for it to be sustained, built upon and connected to. Achieving mastery means acquiring a solid enough understanding of the maths that’s been taught to enable pupils to move on to more advanced material.
In Year 11, students will follow a personalised scheme of work depending on progress throughout KS3 & KS4 as well as students minimum expected grades. The schemes ensure students cover the most appropriate skills, based on previous learning, and support maximum progress before the GCSEs. Students will sit by-weekly in-class PPEs with follow-up provided through Personalised Learning.
