Maths

The purpose of mathematics at The Heights is to develop:

  • a positive attitude towards mathematics and an awareness of the relevance of mathematics in the real world
  • an ability to solve problems, to reason, to think logically and to work systematically and accurately.
  • initiative and an ability to work both independently and in cooperation with others
  • an ability to use and apply mathematics across the curriculum and in real life

Breadth of study

At The Heights we deliver both Maths Functional Skills up to Level 2 and GCSE Maths. Learners are placed onto the correct programme of study depending on a number of factors:

  • BKSB initial assessment
  • GCSE Baseline test results
  • Teacher feedback

Through careful planning and preparation we aim to ensure that throughout The Heights children are given opportunities for:

  • practical activities
  • mathematical games
  • problem solving
  • individual, group and whole class discussions and activities – open and closed tasks.

We believe that maths lessons should include short, interactive activities and a range of tasks to engage and promote learning.

All learners are working towards functional Maths level 2 and Edexcel GCSE 1MAO.
