Maths at Spa School
Maths is taught from 11-19 at Spa School. Students in Key stage 3 and 4 have 4 maths lessons a week. Students learn in practical and hands on manner. In Post 16 (Key stage 5) students have 2 maths lessons a week and there is a greater emphasis on developing their functional maths skills. We pay great care to ensuring that we match the work we give to your child with their learning styles and needs.
We make sure that we offer plenty of opportunities for students to really understand and deepen their mathematical knowledge and understanding.
All students at Spa will have an opportunity to gain accreditation in their maths in KS 4 and 5.
We regularly assess students learning in maths on an on-going and termly basis to ensure that they are making progress to the best of their abilities.
We follow an adapted National Curriculum and we ensure that students learn all the aspects of the curriculum- Number, Measurement, Geometry and Statistics.
Aside form discrete Maths lessons we will exploit opportunities for practicing, developing and embedding basic skills in numeracy across the school day.
