Mathematics inspires pupils to make excellent progress in all areas of the curriculum. Through positive teaching and learning we can ensure learners can apply Mathematics to real life.
Developing a positive attitude to Mathematics, including confidence, enjoyment and perseverance is a fundamental aim of the department. We have a clear departmental ethos to challenge all pupils, raise attainment and celebrate achievement.
Within the Mathematics Department we cater to the individual needs of each pupil, by doing so we can ensure that every pupil can maximise their attainment.
As a department, we are committed to ensuring that every pupil has a positive experience of learning Mathematics, make continuous progress and are challenged to achieve to their full potential. Maths is delivered in the form bases to ensure that pupils feel settled and ready to learn.
We achieve this through excellent teaching, using a variety of resources and stimuli. Pupils are taught in a creative environment, using interactive activities and incorporating the latest technological resources. We regularly review our teaching methods and materials to ensure that they give our pupils an excellent understanding of how numbers fit together, how Mathematics is relevant to everyday life and equip our pupils with the ability to use concepts and skills with confidence. We provide pupils with opportunities to work in pairs or groups to think strategically and communicate mathematically with others. Our commitment to these aims will ensure that we continue to build on our successes.
Pupils follow the Edexcel Linear programme of study during Key Stage 4. Pupils are entered for the higher tier or foundation, this decision is made on an individual basis and will allow for pupils to achieve in line with their potential. The achievable grades range from 9-1 with 9 being the highest achievable.
A small percentage or learners undertake 'Edexcel Entry Level Certificate' either along side their GCSE or as a stand alone qualification, again this is considered on a individual basis.
If parents or carers would like to discuss their child's qualifications with Mr Bhalsod please contact the school office to arrange a meeting.
