Subject Vision

‘Birchensale Middle School lies at the heart of the community. Our caring family values ensure the best possible environment for every pupil to realise their full potential’

The mathematics curriculum is designed to provide interest and challenge to all pupils. Each of the major topic areas (Number, Algebra, Geometry and Measures, Data Handling) are covered. The pitch and pace of work is sensitive to the rate at which pupils learn and enables pupils to have a deep understanding of the content. Teachers use a variety of resources and approaches to engage pupils. Expectations are kept high and progress is made by all pupils. Pupils can discover ways of solving problems and find in links between different areas of mathematics. The language of mathematics is international, it transcends cultural boundaries and its importance is universally recognised. It provides learners with ways of describing and analysing the world. Pupils study mathematics to become functioning adults who can think mathematically enabling them to reason and solve problems.
