Key Stage 3

In Year 7 and 8 Students follow the National Strategy for Maths. The four key areas are:

Students are continually assessed through classwork and regular homework. In
addition, they do specially designed tests at the end of each term which enable us to assess each individual's ability with a good degree of accuracy.

Homework is set every week. Periodically the homework will be set with an e-learning system using MyMaths.co.uk, an interactive maths site that gives instant feedback to pupils. Every pupil is issued with their own login and password that they can use to access their own MyMaths account.

Students are set according to their ability. This setting is based on both their Maths SAT result from Key Stage 2 and testing undertaken at the beginning of Year 7. After this, we monitor each individual's progress carefully on a termly basis and make any adjustments as necessary throughout Key Stage 3.
