Welcome to Mathematics (Year 7)

Mathematics

We endeavour, through a well-designed curriculum and consistently high quality lessons, to ensure that every student can maximise their potential in Maths, develop their problem solving skills, which will enable them to deal with many real-life situations, and discover a genuine interest in the subject.

Curriculum Intent Statement

Our Maths curriculum is designed to give students the opportunity to:

  • Become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately
  • Reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language
  • Solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions
  • Communicate, justify, argue and prove using mathematical vocabulary
  • Develop their character, including resilience, confidence and independence, so that they contribute positively to the life of the school, the local community and the wider environment

We believe that students deserve a creative and ambitious mathematics curriculum, rich in skills and knowledge, which ignites curiosity and prepares them well for everyday life and future employment.
