Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.

Our aim is to promote an excellent mathematical education for all our student. We would like all students to develop a positive and confident attitude towards Mathematics whilst maintaining progress and celebrating achievements.

We hope to achieve this by providing a supportive, secure, interactive, and motivating learning environment where the needs of our pupils including SEND pupils are identified and addressed. Students have different learning styles and preferences it is important that we adopt our teaching styles to consider all students. This will encourage students of all abilities to reach their full potential.

Mathematics is taught using a spiral curriculum in which learning occurs by revisiting topics over time and building competence iteratively. Topics are encountered with increasing complexity according to the learner's cognitive ability and new learning is built upon previous learning.

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, to help students, become active and economically self-sufficient citizens. 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 it's influences within community.

We teach students to reason through class and group discussions. They learn how to be active rather than passive recipients of information. Assessment of prior knowledge is essential, and topics are planned to ensure that pupils have opportunities to revise and revisit skills they have learnt, there is a focus throughout school on the knowledge that pupils will learn and there is an emphasis on remembering. To help children, remember, regular retrieval of previous topics is incorporated. The sequential knowledge learnt and retained is then built upon each year as their understanding of concepts increases and skills are improved.

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. In class assessments is completed at the end of each unit and we use the Federation's examinations twice a year. To provide stability we plan together and use resources that support successful learning and provides an engaging and stimulating environment.
