Equipment List for Maths
In order for pupils to achieve their potential, we recommend the following equipment be provided from the start of year 7 and throughout their school career: Pen, Pencil, Scientific calculator, Ruler, Protractor, Pair of compasses, Rubber and Pencil sharpener.
Sets 3 and 4 pupils will focus on mastering topics that they have previously looked at whilst incorporating new learning that could appear on either the higher or foundation examination. Details can be seen below:
Finally, other pupils will focus on mastering topics previously taught as well as some new content in order to prepare them for the Foundation paper at the end of year 11.
How we assess
Years 7 to 10 – Pupils sit an initial baseline assessment for starting grade and setting purposes. After this they complete mathswatch homeworks which help use to produce ‘RAG’ (red, amber, green) sheets for intervention and low stakes assessment purposes. Pupils are also assessed at 3 points in the year, again for intervention but also for data reporting purposes.
Year 11 – Pupils in year 11 complete 2 sets of mocks n December and February. These marks are upload to a website called pinpoint learning. This helps to inform the students of their next steps in revision, whilst giving the resources to help.
