KS3 – Mathematics

Subject Intent

Our aim is to deliver an appropriately ambitious curriculum that secures subject knowledge through depth, breadth and ambition for all pupils. Our carefully chosen curriculum provides atomisation, careful sequencing, alignment of content, instruction, and assessment. Pupils learn to become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics to access complex problems and develop conceptual understanding. Pupils apply their understanding to routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication. We fundamentally believe in mastering and building a foundation of Mathematics to allow more complex mathematics to be taught and learnt with fidelity, accuracy and pace.

KS3 Subject Narrative

Our KS3 curriculum is a sequence of interconnected mathematics concepts to allow pupils to develop connected mathematical ideas. Pupils are continuously assessed on prior knowledge when being taught new knowledge – which is vitally important for more complex mathematics. We sequence the curriculum by identifying high-leverage topics on which more complex mathematics is taught e.g., place value, four operations, and number theory.
