KS3 Maths

Curriculum Overview

In Maths, we are committed to delivering the curriculum in a positive and encouraging way to engage all learners. The scheme of learning is differentiated throughout both key stages to ensure it is accessible to all pupils. Where necessary, intervention is put into place to support and there are always appropriate levels of challenge to stretch pupils.

Our curriculum also teaches problem solving skills and aims to develop our pupils into independent learners. It enables pupils to enjoy the subject and appreciate the link between maths taught in the classroom and real life. We expect our pupils to approach their maths lessons in an enquiring manner so that they are able to critically question information that is presented to them.

At St Bernadette Catholic Secondary School, we currently teach the Kangaroo Scheme of Work. These schemes of work are based on a model of progression which is part of a wider picture which targets pupils according to their prior attainment at KS2. This enables us to choose the correct starting point for pupils so that we can support them on achieving knowledge at a level appropriate to them; in doing this, gaps in knowledge can be addressed and pupils can be supported to make progress towards the next stage of their learning.

How will I be assessed?

Students are assessed in relation to St Bernadette 1-6 grades. To aid with this at the end of each term students are assessed on the key concepts in their stage for that term.

At the end of each year, students will have a larger assessment covering all the key concepts covered in the year.
