Welcome to Maths
This is an exciting time for Mathematics; the new National Curriculum model encourages students to apply the skills they learn to everyday situations. This means that during the time between Year 7 and Year 11, students will be given opportunity to learn through a variety of different methods including teacher and student-led discussion, group work, use of ICT, textbook practice and project work. The aim is to make mathematics as accessible and enjoyable as possible for all our students through the use of a variety of teaching methods to accommodate different learning styles.
Students are at present taught in two mixed ability groups but as the school grows, all students are grouped based on ability. In year 7 this is based on achievement at KS2 and internal baseline tests and is something tha will be reviewed regularly throughout your child’s time at The Suthers School. We have extremely high expectations of all our students and endeavour to provide the support required to ensure their success.
By achieving good grades within maths we know that students will have the opportunity to go on and become the next generation of teachers, accountants, statisticians, bankers, engineers, actuaries…or even researchers exploring issues such as climate change and much more.
