The Mathematics department of Archbishop Lanfranc Academy believes that Maths is Life. Pupils are challenged to learn mathematical skills and content and apply these in solving real life mathematical problems. Both Years 7 and 8 will complete the same units of work but at varying degrees of challenge and depth. Pupils in Year 9 begin the Key stage 4 curriculum by following either the higher or foundation tier.
Assessment
Learners are given the opportunity to consolidate their understanding by a rigorous system of Assessment for Learning which includes set tasks and end of unit’s tests. This ensures that every learner is secured in their understanding of each topic and interventions are rightly targeted. Homework are set regularly both on line and on paper which is an essential part of the monitoring and tracking of progress of the learners.
