*Some of the content in these schemes of learning may differ during the academic year 2020-2021 as departments prioritise skills and knowledge from the extended period of remote learning from March to July 2019-2020 and plan for periods of remote learning during this academic year.*

### How and when is my child assessed?

The Maths department assess pupils throughout Key Stage 3 and has summative assessments at the end of each term, revision lists are provided and students should be in the habit of regularly reviewing all their previous work. Assessments are graded using the GCSE 1-9 system; a current grade will be given along with a projection for GCSE and topics for improvement identified.

Name of course(s) offered | Exam board | Link to spec | Nature of assessment |
---|---|---|---|

GCSE Mathematics | Edexcel | https://qualifications.pearson.com/content/dam/pdf/GCSE/mathematics/2015/specification-and-sample-assessment/gcse-maths-2015-specification.pdf | Three 90 minute written exams |

### Teaching Strategies

The Maths department assess pupils throughout Key Stage 3 and has summative assessments at the end of each term, revision lists are provided and students should be in the habit of regularly reviewing all their previous work. Assessments are graded using the GCSE 1-9 system; a current grade will be given along with a projection for GCSE and topics for improvement identified.

In Maths lessons, teachers will use a variety of teaching strategies to support their pupils through the learning process. The teacher will choose a teaching strategy most suitable to the topic being studied, the level of expertise of the learner and the stage in their learning journey. Examples of teaching and learning strategies that may be used are:

- Collaborative learning
- Personalised learning
- Developing metacognition
- differentiation
- odelling & Scaffolding
- Retrieval practice
- Interleaving
- Dual coding

A big emphasis will be placed on pupil practice as this is vital for success in Mathematics.

Homework will be a combination of written tasks and online work via Mathswatch. The written tasks will often be from their fluency booklets which are high frequency skills that are regularly required as a basis for future learning. Staff will give feedback to pupils, allowing them to make corrections with the expectation that pupils scores and skills improve over time.

After school support is offered to students on a Monday and additional revision classes for Year 11 students.
