Maths

Mathematics vision:

To provide students with a challenging and ambitious curriculum where every student has the opportunity to learn from mistakes, the support to improve, the confidence to never give up, the pride to work to the best of their ability, the aspiration to succeed and achieve their full potential in maths.

Curriculum intent:

A 5 year programme to support the maths vision of creating a challenging curriculum where students are encouraged to be resilient, aspirational and not afraid to make mistakes

Implementation:

5 year curriculum being implemented with mastery embedded as an underlying theme. The schools three year key stage 3 has influenced the maths 5 year programme. Key stage 3 focussed on mastery, students trialling different methods with a focus on mastery and aspiration to prepare students for the GCSE programme. Key stage 4 focussed on exam techniques and using elements of mastery including multiple representations, variation and mathematical links. Focus on choosing the most efficient methods. Focus on spacing and interleaving

Key concepts and fundamentals:

  • To reason, write mathematically, be fluent, reasoning and problem solving.
  • To communicate mathematically
  • To be numerate
  • To be resilient

Sequencing of lessons:

  • Consideration given to the pre-requisite skills
  • The topics before lead into the next half term
  • Interleaving
