Mathematics Vision and Mission Statement
The Mathematics Department at Aldersley is comprised of a committed team of inspiring individuals, from NQT’s to members of staff with years of experience.
As a department we are committed to raising the achievement and aspirations of our students. Within GCSE Mathematics, 17.1% of students achieved G9-7, 61.5% of students achieved G9-4 and 41.5% of students achieved G9-5. At KS5, 60% of students achieved a grade A.
Out of lesson time we run a number of activities aimed at different year groups and ability sets to encourage students to deepen their understanding of mathematical skills and methods. Clubs include additional KS3 and KS4 small group intervention, and a puzzle and code breaking club. We also run activities aimed to challenge our more able and creative students including the UK Maths Challenge, and events ran by the Further Mathematics Support Programme.
Our departmental vision is as follows:
As a result of good teaching and learning, our students are encouraged to develop into thinking individuals who are mathematically literate and can exceed their potential. The Mathematics Department are working consistently and collaboratively in a reflective manner to ensure their passion for the subject is instilled within their students.
Please feel free to view the schemes of learning covered. Our schemes are differentiated to ensure it is accessible to all. The Mathematics Department also work closely alongside other departments to ensure numeracy is taught consistently. We believe the breadth and depth of our schemes contribute to our irresistible curriculum. Throughout the year we also make time to include problem solving lessons and links to maths in the real world.
