Curriculum
We follow the Pearson 5year scheme of work, which has three learning paths, linked to Key Stage 2 outcomes.
At Key Stage 3 these are Pi, Theta and Delta. From students’ performance at Key Stage 3, these refine to foundation and higher at GCSE.
At A Level we follow the Edexcel course for both A Level Mathematics and A Level Further Mathematics.
There is a very clear link between SoW, lesson plans, textbooks, homework, progress check, feedback and intervention work.
Students have access to electronic versions of textbooks when completing their homework.
Structure of the tiers
KS4 follows 2 tiers: Foundation and Higher in Yrs 9, 10 and 11
KS3 follows 3 tiers: Pi , Theta and Delta in Yr 7 and 8.
Pi – low ability (emerging and developing students)
Theta – middle ability ( developing and securing students)
Delta – higher ability ( securing, advanced and exceptional students)
Assessment
All students complete assessments at the end of every unit and three times a year. This enables us to monitor their progress and effectively organise intervention when necessary.
Revision Resources:
Homework for all year groups is set on ‘Show My Homework’ and is designed to support and develop the learning that is taking place in our classrooms in relation to our Schemes of Learning. Homework is set on a weekly basis and should take 60 minutes to complete.
