Mathematics

 

What we will do:

The Twickenham School Mathematics Department will follow the whole school policy for curriculum provision. In addition to this, the Mathematics department will also:

  • Build on prior learning in key stages 1 and 2 in order to develop and sustain the foundational components without which future Mathematical Knowledge cannot be acquired.
  • Plan and deliver exciting and engaging lessons that nevertheless set high standards of challenge for all pupils throughout.
  • Follow a rigorous and carefully planned curriculum that allows students to learn Mathematical skills whilst also enhancing their broader perspective on the world and development of cultural capital through real life examples.
  • Provide students with opportunities for reflection within lessons to constantly develop their personal understanding of Mathematics.
  • Encourage all students to consider further study of Mathematics and entry into Mathematical options post-16 e.g. A Levels.
  • Develop students’ interest in Mathematics in the wider world through activities such as school visits, Maths clubs, competitions and special events such as Pi Day.

Allocation of Teaching and Sets

All Year Groups are taught by specialist teams with specific teachers allocated to specific classes. All years are set in ability based sets, however, arrangements for setting are flexible and regularly reviewed. Monitoring points will ensure that there are termly opportunities for students to move between sets. Occasionally, classes split between two teachers may occur but in such instances a robust and consistent scheme of work will ensure that no inequities or inconsistencies develop.

Marking and Feedback

Every student will receive one assessed task per half term which the teacher will provide detailed feedback on. Students will then be given time to reflect upon and improve their work with respect to said feedback.
