What is the curriculum trying to achieve?

Developing our innate sense of number to ensure students are able to function successfully in the numerate world, Mathematics is a subject that spans the entire curriculum and provides students with the opportunity to develop and hone their problem solving, communication skills and logical thinking.  This purpose ensures students are resourceful, resilient individuals who can apply what they have learnt to the wider world.   

Our Mathematics curriculum aims to be ambitious for all students. We use ‘low floor, high ceiling tasks’ together with reasoning and problem-solving questions to provide challenging and enjoyable lessons for all types of learners.  We are passionate about teaching lessons that are inclusive and so we deliver our curriculum in a way that ensures our Pupil Premium and SEND students progress in line with their peers. At Key Stage 3, our students will all study the same topic and the teaching strategies we implement, such as Maths mastery, are particularly useful for pupils with SEND. 


How do we organise learning?     

Each of our subjects organises learning to achieve our federation vision of ‘Educating today’s students for the world of tomorrow: a seamless education from 4 to 19’.  Please click here to see a visual map of students’ planned ‘learning journey’ in maths across Key Stage 3, 4 and 5.
