Mathematics

Our aim is to promote an excellent mathematical education for all our student. We want to bring out the best in all our students beyond the classroom. We aim to collaborate with other department to develop the whole person, in order to help students become active and economically self-sufficient citizens.

We teach students to reason through class and group discussions. They learn how to be active rather than passive recipients of information. We aim to teach our students by collaborating with the wider community to enhance our students' experience whilst using the Harris Federation Scheme of work as its basis. By doing so, students appreciate their cultural experiences and its influences within community.

We believe all students should learn the whole curriculum and it is our duty to ensure they have access to it. We aim to teach the mastery of all topics. We provide intervention sessions to ensure all students make progress. Class assessments are completed at the end of each unit and we use the Federation's examinations three times a year. To provide stability, we plan together and use resources that support successful learning and provide an engaging and stimulating environment.


Implementation

As part of mastery teaching, students learn fewer topics each term. We aim to ensure all students have a secure knowledge by completing formal assessments and reassessing when necessary after relearning.

A two year Key Stage 4 allows students the time to gain a thorough understanding of what is expected of them at GCSE whilst also developing their love for learning and appreciation of their community.

A typical lesson starts with 'DO NOW' of interleaving exercises. Students from the onset are always challenged to use retrieval skills to revise topics that were taught in previous lessons. The main lesson will see all students tackling challenging content, with teachers providing 'scaffolding' for students who need it. For our  higher attainers, it is vital for them to produce work with depth and communicate their knowledge with reflection to our community.

There is an opportunity for all students to discuss the knowledge and understanding of the tasks and complete independent practice. You will see the use of different learning tools in the classroom supported by carefully planned lessons to provoke active learning in the classroom.

Year 6s must complete a summer project so that they can practise their numeracy skills. We complete a baseline test once students enter Year 7 and quickly devise a catch up plan to support those without a secure knowledge in order to access the full curriculum. This continues throughout the Key Stages.

Critical thinking is supported through play. As well as intervention sessions, we also promote learning through play. Students partake in Ludo, Chess, Dominoes, Scrabble, Connect 4 and many other number-based games whilst practising their reasoning and problem solving skills.


Impact

As a Federation, our students are very fortunate to use high-quality summative assessments three times a year that demonstrate their level of understanding of Maths. It enables teachers to assess the impact of teaching too.

We use HELM to support our  planning and intervention for our students. The teaching of Mathematics is informed by our students' understanding. As such, we focus on formative assessments from lesson to lesson.

Our aim is that students are fluent in each topic. In lessons, students are quizzed on prior knowledge in order to embed this knowledge in their long-term memory. This frees up working memory to support current learning outcomes.

As literacy is very important in our subject area, we teach mathematical vocabulary whilst also relating them to 'LIFE WORDS'. Students complete an extended piece of writing every term. Homework also plays a vital role and is used to promote independent learning as well as practising fluency.

For our Year 11s, ultimately meeting our target and supporting students to achieve their best by gaining a place in further education and apprenticeship is the impact we desire.
