Mathematics

Curriculum Intent

‘Pure mathematics is, in its way, the poetry of logical ideas.’ – Albert Einstein

It is the intention of the St Cuthbert’s Mathematics department to deliver a curriculum that is knowledge based and ambitious, designed to meet the needs of all our students. We aim to create an aspirational high-achieving culture while also considering our students individual needs and learning styles thus enabling all students to experience success.

 

We aim to develop the skills set out in the National Curriculum to promote an appreciation of Mathematics as a creative and highly transferable discipline which will aid students in their further learning, apprenticeships, or employment. We do not limit the life chances of any student as we offer a linear scheme in KS3 with all students having the full National Curriculum delivered to them. 

 

We aim to provide students with a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject together with an appreciation of the beauty and power of Maths in different cultures. We endeavour to provide support across a range of topics with an emphasis on problem-solving and developing Mathematical fluency through a mastery approach, making sure that all learning is embedded in long-term memory. This will build resilience and enable students to recall information to use in a variety of new learning opportunities as well as real life situations.
