How is mathematics assessed?

In all years students are placed in sets. Every term students complete a formal assessment, which is levelled to show the progress of students, in line with the rest of the school we will be using the new GCSE 9-1 levels for all year groups.

How can I help my child?

In Years 7 & 8 students are given a homework booklet each half-term which includes activities, challenge cards and games to play with your child.  In Year 9 students are given weekly homework using the MyMaths website.  In both cases parental support and help is very important.
