Maths

 

“Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.”

– Dr. Seuss

 

At Hope High School, we believe 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. Our primary objective is to enable students to engage, explore, enjoy and succeed in maths. To do this, we must remove barriers to learning and delivery a personalised learning programme. Very often learners have low confidence in their mathematical ability; we aim to increase confidence and attainment in Mathematics so that our learners can achieve excellent qualifications when they leave us in year 11.

 

All students are taught in mixed ability year groups in both KS3 and KS4. There is a strong emphasis on developing confidence through problem solving, logical thinking and working together. All new learners are screened for dyscalculia and are offered specialist 1-1 teaching if required. Other interventions are offered such as a 1-1 study support.

 

Year 7

Pupils will study a range of different topics covering number, algebra, geometry, probability and statistics. They will also complete various functional skills tasks to help them prepare for the real world and also prepare them for the Functional Skills assessments that they will complete during years 10 and 11.  Pupils will complete three assessments per year at the end of each term that are marked internally and used to inform teaching.

 

Year 8

Year 8 will run in a very similar style to year 7. Pupils will start to prepare more for the Functional Skills side of their Mathematics learning in preparation for year 9.
