Mathematics and numeracy are the cornerstones of technological developments, future employability and fundamental in adult life.
By creating a highly motivated and supportive team of mathematics teachers, they will foster a culture of challenging students and harnessing all abilities and promote a love of learning. This gives students the deeper understanding of the skills required to be the best mathematicians they can be, offering each student the best mathematical education they can have. Students will learn to be creative thinkers, problem solvers and resilient learners, who will learn from errors, so they can be confident in delivering the mathematical abilities employers and higher education require.
- To implement the school vision of British values and the Vale way.
- To set challenging yet achievable targets, setting high expectations for all pupils in class and around the academy.
- To offer a variety of approaches to teaching and learning, to engage and motivate pupils and demand their active participation.
- To build student resilience, leading them to become active independent learners.
- To ensure all students, regardless of their ability, make progress between key stages 3 and 4
- Explore enrichment opportunities outside the curriculum to enhance pupils’ enjoyment of mathematics
- To support students in the further study of mathematics leading to the challenges of KS5
These aims will be challenged and re-evaluated with strengths identified and shared and opportunities developed, critiqued and challenged
