Maths is more than a subject, it is a life skill. The journey, that begins when a child learns to count, should continue seamlessly throughout the child’s education, encouraging them to become effective and reflective problem solvers who display a sense of curiosity and enjoyment of the subject. Rapidly changing technological advances have been made full use of by the maths department, for example the use of iPads in lessons for years 7 to 11 and interactive web resources for all pupils. The vision of the Maths department at Priory is to prepare our pupils to be resilient, independent, well rounded citizens.


Key Stage 2

Key Stage 3

At Key Stage 3 the students maths journey continues. The skills that have been acquired at Key stage 2 are continually strengthened and extended in a spiral curriculum which has been planned to frequently revisit topics. As their confidence and skills improve, they are expected to be able to solve and master a range of complex, multi-step problems.

Although Algebra is touched upon at Key Stage 2, it is at Key Stage 3 that students are expected to know how to manipulate algebra to form and solve equations in preparation for the demands of Key Stage 4.

From Year 7, they begin using iPads in maths lessons, which allows them to directly interact with the content of the lessons being taught. The iPad is an effective tool for all types of learners, further engaging students in lessons as the information is being delivered in a method that they are all familiar with.

Key Stage 4

In Year 10 and 11 students are nearing the final stages of their maths journey at Priory Academy. Students are entered for either Higher Edexcel GCSE (9-1) Mathematics or Foundation Edexcel GCSE (9-1) Mathematics at the end of Year 11.

By this stage the students have matured and developed into independent learners. They are able to apply the skills and knowledge that they have acquired throughout their time at Priory and can use these effectively for the best possible outcome.
