The mathematics curriculum prioritises building ‘firm foundations’ – securing the core aspects of KS3 maths early on, and developing pupils’ mathematical confidence – rather than racing through content. Those who are fluent and flexible with core skills and ideas enjoy more depth within topics, rather than being pushed too quickly into KS4 content.
The work in the classroom is supplemented by daily maths homework. Times Tables Rock Stars or Hegarty Maths is completed online most evenings, and twice a week children work on written questions to revise and prepare for low-stakes quizzes.
Pupils have a minimum of 6 lessons a week with a qualified and highly-trained maths teacher. Those who need additional support work in very small groups on the highly effective Connecting Maths Concepts intervention programme, as well as getting support with homework.
