Maths

At McKee, each student receives 4 or 5 lessons of Maths each week, which include a variety of teaching and learning styles to create high levels of engagement and enthusiasm in the subject and to suit individuals’ needs and preferences. Students enjoy learning individually as well as in small groups.

Targets are set for Students based on prior achievement and recommendations from FFT Aspire. As a department we will also assess students as they enter our school and from this we will identify which route is most suitable for them and where their gaps in knowledge lie.

Students from both KS3 and KS4 follow the Pearson scheme of work which is most suitable to their ability and age. Because of the different starting points of all of our learners, time is also built into lessons for ‘plugging the gap’ where individuals work on areas specific to their gaps in knowledge. Teaching assistants are used within class to help facilitate this individualised curriculum.

At KS4, students can sit qualifications in Edexcel Functional skills Maths, GCSE 9-1 Maths and also AQA Further Maths.
