## Curriculum Intent Summary

We promote mathematics as a positive experience and a subject to enjoy, we develop resilience and perseverance through the delivery of a comprehensive curriculum which equips students with the fundamental mathematical knowledge to succeed in everyday life.  We aim high and encourage the best from both staff and students.

Please find below a link to a Maths Video. The video is to share with you what students will be learning over the Spring Term.

## Year 9

Year 9 students will begin the OCR J560 GCSE Maths course, their starting point is dependent on the understanding and progress made in Y7 and 8.   The GCSE course is broken down into a series of modules that increase in difficulty; Initial, Bronze, Silver and Gold with the additional module of Platinum for the Foundation tier students.  In January of Y11, a final decision will be made as to which tier of entry a student will be entered for, the Foundation tier covers grades 1 to 5 and the Higher tier covers grades 4 to 9.

## Year 10

Year 10 students continue with the OCR J560 GCSE Maths course, progress and understanding acquired in Y9 is also taken into consideration.   The GCSE course is broken down into a series of modules that increase in difficulty; Initial, Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum for the Foundation tier.

In January of Y11, a final decision will be made as to which tier of entry a student will be entered for, the Foundation tier covers grades 1 to 5 and the Higher tier covers grades 4 to 9.

## Year 11

Year 11 students continue and complete the OCR J560 GCSE Maths course, progress and understanding acquired in Y10 is also taken into consideration.   The GCSE course is broken down into a series of modules that increase in difficulty; Initial, Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum for the Foundation tier.

During Y11 students will additionally embark on a revision programme to ensure that they are fully prepared for the GCSE examinations.

In January of Y11, a final decision will be made as to which tier of entry a student will be entered for, the Foundation tier covers grades 1 to 5 and the Higher tier covers grades 4 to 9.

The GCSE examination comprises of three 1hour 30minute examinations of which one with taken without a calculator.

Further to the GCSE Mathematics course, students will (on an individual basis) be entered for the AQA GCSE Statistics examination.  Statistics is taught alongside and in conjunction with the GCSE maths curriculum.
