Maths

Intent

Maths is for everyone. It is diverse, engaging and essential in equipping students with the right skills to reach their future destination, whatever that may be. The teaching of mathematics enables students to be able to form their own conclusions, as it teaches them how to solve problems using logical steps and procedures.

Students follow the National Curriculum which aims to ensure that all pupils become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, reason mathematically and can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine situations.

The content is organised into broad topic areas:

• Number
• Algebra
• Ratio, proportion and rates of change
• Geometry and measures
• Probability
• Statistics
