The Mathematics course at Key Stage 3 builds on the content, knowledge and skills developed during the Key Stage 2 programme of study. We follow schemes of work designed to meet the needs of the Grade 9-1 GCSEs which were examined for the first time in June 2017.
Assessment is continuous. Teachers assess pupils’ progress during lessons using appropriate tasks and probing questions as well as using periodic assessments throughout the year. Internal end of year exams are held in the Summer term of each year.
