The Curriculum Intent for Maths in KS3 at Pilton College is to use the building blocks provided at primary school to develop links to new areas of mathematics whilst promoting mathematical reasoning and problem solving.
Our KS4 curriculum intent is to provide students with the skills and knowledge they need to become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics. They will be able to reason mathematically, solve problems, develop arguments and justify and explain their answers. Through varied and purposeful practice they will be able to solve increasingly complex problems, applying their knowledge and skills accurately and efficiently. Mathematics helps to develop the resilience, confidence and independence that students need, whatever their next steps.
