Curriculum Intent for the Maths Department

VHS Maths department challenges students at all levels with a clear focus of giving them a deeper understanding of maths which we promote by frequently asking the question ‘why’. A VHS Maths student will demonstrate independence and resilience promoted through their reflections and work on feedback. Our curriculum is sequenced such that students’ knowledge and skills are developed at each level through consolidation and building on what they know whilst introducing synoptic links. We nurture our students to be high calibre mathematicians, problem solvers and strong mathematical communicators who can form a mathematical argument supported by reasoning, which we develop through discussions and collaborative learning. We aim to develop confident students who will be able to apply the numerical and transferable skills learnt through maths at VHS to the next stage of their life.
