Subject Intent: 

In mathematics we aspire to develop learners with the skills required to analyse, evaluate and problem solve; inspiring creativity and giving them the independence to review approaches and solutions in all aspects of their lives. We continually strive to promote ‘buy in’ to maths by aligning the national curriculum with current and relevant contexts, whilst increasing our pupils’ capacity for financial literacy, thus allowing them to make informed and effective decisions with their future financial resources. We will:

  • Provide all learners with the knowledge they need for subsequent learning and provide deeper understanding of concepts; giving learners the skills they require to connect previous learning to new knowledge, freeing up working memory and preparing for future learning.
  • Deliver challenging lessons which improve comprehension through context.
  • Provide frequent opportunities during lessons to interleave topics, linking new information to prior understanding, to increase retention and promote a deeper understanding of mathematical connections. 
  • Develop our learners’ knowledge which is transferable to other subjects, future employability and lifelong skills.
  • Provide learners with frequent opportunities to develop skills they need to process unseen questions, work beyond what is covered in lessons and become proactive role models.
