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.
KS4 Subject Narrative
KS4 topics and knowledge are revisited in greater complexity in years 10 and 11. The Year 9 curriculum is an opportunity to revise and build more complex mathematical concepts committed to long-term memory in Years 7 and 8. E,g., Place Value & Number properties allows pupils to identify the procedural impact of numbers by Powers of 10 and the impact of size on a number’s place value. The Year 10 and 11 curriculum includes topics which are mixed concepts e.g. Linear graphs is the application of algebraic notation and linear equations in the context of coordinate geometry
