Our Curriculum intent in Maths is to provide an environment where students can learn and become competent users of Numeracy and Mathematics. The department will contribute to the development of students as problem-solvers and mathematical thinkers, equipping them to become lifelong learners to grow in their chosen professions and to be productive citizens in a world with finite resources.
Maths teaches our students to be logical, analytical and precise in problem solving. These are vital skills in order to succeed in any career or personal challenges they may face in life when they are older. Being a successful mathematician shows that our students have a basic level of resilience and independent thinking skills that employers are always looking for. The Maths curriculum is a vital part of providing student with the Master Key to their futures.

Download the Maths Long Term Curriculum Plan for Years 7-11. An overview of the Maths curriculum is shown below.
It is vital for you to prepare for the upcoming maths assessments as best as possible and work effectively outside of lessons. The best way of doing this is to go through the past papers that have been given in class and work through the questions you got wrong. Aim to answer 3-5 more questions each time you go through the paper. Below are the three steps to take when revising.
1) Pinpoint booklet (https://www.pinpointlearning.co.uk/). This individual maths matrix button shows you the topics where you need to focus on (red topics). If you hover over the topic, you will get the exact question to practice and the markscheme for it. The login details are on each Pinpoint booklet you have received. On the left of the topic list it shows you the Hegarty Maths clip for that particular topic for video guidance and help on it. You can also access your personalised revision booklet and the solutions from this website.
2) HegartyMaths (https://hegartymaths.com/). Once you have identified the topics you need most help with on Pinpoint Learning, go to Hegarty Maths for the videos. This will allow you to watch the video, make notes, attempt questions and know within seconds if they are correct or not. If you have forgotten your password, please click on the reset password button and your teacher will reset it so you can select a new one. We recommend an easy password like Harris123.
3) Corbett Maths (https://corbettmaths.com/contents/). This website contains past paper questions and worked solutions for every topic. This is the place to go for more practice questions on whichever topic you are practising. The website is free to use and no log in is required.
Further to the above, you have also received a revision guide at the start of the year which its packed with concise, friendly explanations of every topic, explained with plenty of step-by-step examples. Grade information of 1 to 9 is also included to show the difficulty level of each topic, and there are exam style questions at the back of the page to test you on the important skills. This guide also contains two extra practice papers to help you.
If you need more guidance please email your teacher and they will respond with more resources.
Please make sure when revising that you have the following: pen, pencil, ruler, protractor, compass and calculator for your upcoming maths assessments.
All resources for A Level Maths can be found on https://integralmaths.org/. Pupils have their individual logins and can contact Ms Abdulaahi if they have forgotten them.
Integral Maths contains lessons, quizzes and most usefully topic exercises with fully worked solutions. Pupils should ensure they complete the level 1 and level 2 exercises for each topic and then look at the worked solutions for help. Level 3 exercises should be attempted as a Stretch & Challenge activity.
