Maths

Our approach is to enhance pupils' enjoyment of maths by working to ensure they experience success. For pupils who have missed time in school or who have struggled to make progress, this may mean spending more time building up their knowledge of number facts and methods, with structured practice to help with long term retention. Pupils who are already more confident also spend time learning strategies to apply to problems and recognising when a particular strategy is required. 

Although pupils join us at different points, we structure the school year to provide the possibility for progression and some clarity for pupils as to what to expect and what they might have missed. 

Y11d students have the opportunity to follow Entry Level Maths pathways, with Level 1 Maths available for pupils able to progress that far. These groups work flexibly according to their previous experience, their ability to master number facts and methods and to establish long term retention.
