Maths

KS3 Maths teaching at Forest Moor is based around the National Curriculum. All classes supplement teaching with hands-on, interactive and problem solving activities. Whatever the starting point or experience students arrive at Forest Moor with it is important that all are given the opportunity to develop numerical understanding and skills. 

The teaching of Maths at Forest Moor enables each pupil to develop within their capabilities; not only the mathematics skills and understanding required for later life, but also enthusiasm and fascination about Maths itself. We aim to increase confidence to enable expression of ideas using the language of Maths with confidence and assurance.

For pupils that may have fallen behind their expected level, Forest Moor offers targeted Maths interventions that aim to rapidly improve a pupils Maths skills. This one to one work often rapidly advances students at twice the expected rate of progress.

Pupils are assessed at the end of every term in the form of an Alfie test which is an on line assessment tool designed to accurately track an individual’s progress. Alternatively pupils complete a written unit test that is then marked and moderated by a variety of the teaching staff to ensure accurate levels for all pupils.
