Secondary – Maths

Maths Key Stage 3


Pupils in KS3 will be following the New Maths National Curriculum for 2014 using the Edexcel Maths Progress Scheme Of Work and resources. The resources are split into three pathways: Pi, Theta and Delta with Alpha supporting the lower ability students. The emphasis in this programme of study is to prepare pupils for KS4 and to develop numeracy skills. Because there is a requirement in the new National Curriculum for pupils to reasoning mathematically , certain topics will be taught using the bar modelling method from the Singapore Maths Programme of study. This will allow pupils to use a concrete to pictorial to abstract approach that gives them a sound basis for problem solving in KS4.
