Key Stage 3 Maths Overview

Years 7 and 8 follow a mastery curriculum in order to deepen the understanding of the students’ mathematical knowledge, which includes students participating in regular problem solving and reasoning activities during Mathematics lessons.  This enables students to become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, so that they can develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately.  Once students have a greater understanding in the basics of Mathematics, they will then move into the next year building upon their prior knowledge so to allow the students to become better equipped mathematicians.

Key Stage 4 - Mathematics Curriculum Intent ( Access to Foundation, Foundation and Higher)

Year 9

In year 9, Jarrow School Mathematicians begin to focus their attentions on GCSE learning outcomes, the pathway they will follow is unique only to Jarrow School.

Students will follow an interspaced curriculum model which is directly related to the Gatsby benchmarks. This will allow all learners the endless possibilities of exploring mathematics encountered in the real world.  This is done by subdividing the key stage 4 GCSE curriculum model into 13 subsections all with a specific focus on the world of work.

The units that all students will following during year 9 are as follows:

  • Sports Performance and Analysis
  • Finance
  • Project Management
  • Numeracy for everyday life
  • Commerce
  • Digital Information

Within the units, carefully selected learning outcomes which include subject areas such as Numbers, Ratio and Proportion, Geometry, Algebra and Data Handling are taught using interspacing and retrieval practice to ensure a deep and embedded understanding of what is taught throughout the academic year.
