At Stowmarket, we strive to develop a love of number and we believe that mathematics can be enjoyed by all pupils. All students have a different way of thinking and learning, therefore provision is made for each individual and a variety of appropriate teaching strategies are used, making good use of our excellent resources. We encourage our pupils to have the confidence to put forward their ideas and explain the methods that they are using. Extra support is given to those who need reinforcement and for the very able students we take the subject to a higher level whilst also participating in the Junior, Intermediate and Senior maths challenges run by Leeds University. We encourage pupils to tackle open-ended problems and investigations; they need to decide for themselves appropriate strategies and how they will formulate a solution. Our teaching groups are flexible and constantly reassessed and we run maths clubs at lunchtime and after school.
Yeasr 9 to 11 will follow a 3 year scheme of work from Edexcel at either a higher or foundation entry to achieve the best possible grade possible for your child. In 2016, pupils will achieve the traditional A* to G grade in mathematics, but from 2017 onwards new grades are introduced as pupils will work hard to achieve on the new 1-9 grade scale.
