Maths

At Grange Park, our aim is to develop ‘a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject’ (National Curriculum 2014). We are also dedicated to equipping our pupils with skills to use in the real world. Pupils are regularly encouraged to solve problems involving time and money.

 

In the classroom we seek to create a supportive learning environment. In each class pupils are taught in small groups. Each group has a programme of study tailored to their ability. We make great use of a variety of software, websites, games, real-life materials and kinaesthetic apparatus (Numicon) to engage students and help them learn in the way that best suits their needs.

 

We recently began to use Mymaths, an online interactive programme where pupils have access to an individualised programme of study. Pupils are able to consolidate previous learning, self-teach and complete tasks. This is proving to be very popular with our students. Students who wish to complete homework can make use of this resource. The results of any tasks completed are automatically recorded for the teacher to look at, track progress and highlight areas for development.

 

At KS3 we follow the new National Curriculum. Year 7 and 8 follow similar schemes of work with year 8 consolidating and extending the previous years learning.

 

During Year 9 and 10 we expect all students to gain Entry Level Mathematics. Some Year 9 and 10 will also start the programme of study for GCSE as well as an Edexcel Level 1 award.

 

In Year 11, pupils will go on to study either GCSE or Entry Level Functional skills. This years’ Year 11 will also be completing their Edexcel Level 1 award.  Pupils not following the GCSE route will also spend time practising using Maths in real life situations (Money, Time and Measures).

 

At KS5, some students work solely on improving their accreditation (GCSE) whilst others will split their time working on accreditation (Entry Level or Edexcel Level 1 award) and practising using Maths in real life situations (Money, Time and Measures).
