Curriculum Intent 

 

Our aim is to develop the students’ ability to confidently and independently solve problems in Maths.  This approach will allow them to apply logic and analytical methods to develop their passion and understanding of numeracy, enabling them to be confident and self-assured when dealing with numbers both in the classroom and out in the real world.  Through high quality teaching, students become independent and resilient in solving problems and develop in every aspect academically, socially, emotionally and intellectually.

 

Key Stage 3

At KS3, we are focussing on a mastery approach to focus on key representations and variation of questions to ensure all pupils have a deep understanding of the mathematical concepts. A grounding in numeracy and algebra at the start of the year sets pupils up to further understand other broad aspects of mathematics. We aim to challenge and stretch pupils at every opportunity so that each student can make the appropriate progress.

 

Key Stage 4

 KS4 sets out to expand on the previous ideas taught in KS3 and develop their understanding further.  Changes in the GCSE Mathematics specification mean that functional elements and reasoning have been embedded in the course to ensure that students have the skills they need to use Mathematics in real life contexts. We focus on teaching the AO1 concepts through fluency and variation, whilst giving pupils exposure to rich problem solving and reasoning tasks so that this knowledge can be applied. Students will study number, algebra, ratio, proportion and rates of change, geometry and measures, probability and statistics.

GCSE Mathematics has a foundation tier (grades 1-5) and a higher tier (grades 4-9).  Students must take three question papers at the same tier.  All question papers must be taken from the same series.
