Welcome to the mathematics department...
Assistant Headteacher - Mathematics
In maths, we aim to develop resilient and independent learners who are adept at problem solving. Pupils are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning and we offer rewards and recognition for those that do this consistently. Where pupils require additional support we offer numeracy interventions, teacher led tuition, daily Homework Club and round the clock support through free access to online resources.
In the classroom, teachers make effective use of research informed strategies to develop pupils as they follow a carefully crafted learning journey that establishes strong foundations before stretching and challenging understanding as their journey progresses. We are committed to ensuring that all pupils leave Newman having achieved their full potential through the studying of Functional Skills and GCSE qualifications and also wish pupils to understand the maths they will face in real life including managing tax, mortgages, budgeting and understanding good and bad debt.
