At Leigh Academy Rainham, students will follow an interweaving , hierarchical, inquiry-based mathematical curriculum, allowing students to explore Mathematics in a range of contexts; which then equips students with the knowledge and skills to solve and address problems in their everyday lives.
The Mathematics curriculum at Leigh Academy Rainham aims to provide all students with a rich, balanced and diverse curriculum. By this we mean that: all students are able to learn a range of mathematical knowledge and skills which equip them for real life contexts outside our academy. In addition, we aim to inspire our students to become global citizens whereby they can apply their mathematical learning so that they are able to reason and problem solve, not only in their own subject area but in the hope to transfer their knowledge to other curriculum subjects and careers.
This is underpinned by the National Curriculum and the iB framework. Our curriculum is more ambitious than the national curriculum as it provides students opportunities to undertake inquiry-based learning, whereby students of various attainment levels can ask questions about their learning, ranging from factual, conceptual and debatable questions, promoting the inquisitiveness about the role of Mathematics in the 21st century.
With the development and innovation of modern technology, it is essential we give students the tools to be able to communicate effectively and efficiently. This allows students to become upskilled digitally to help them in their future learning and careers. In order for students to understand the importance of their Mathematics it is vital the curriculum allows students to practise the ethos of the school and develop their Leadership, Emotional Intelligence, Inquisitiveness, Grit and Humility. If the curriculum is ambitious and rigorous, students will have the chance to show resilience and determination. Our curriculum will give students the opportunity to be responsible for their own learning and prepare them for success in their mathematical journey.
Leigh Academy Rainham are following the Complete Maths Curriculum; however, this curriculum is based with a mastery approach to learning, whereby students only move on to the next concept when they show proficiency in the existing concept. By taking this approach, it builds confidence, resilience and gives students the reassurance that they are ready to move to the next learning episode in their mathematical journey.
The curriculum map shows one continuous learning journey and covers all of the school level of mathematics from counting to calculus.
Where is my child in the Curriculum?
It is the responsibility of parents to check their child’s google classroom to see where they are in the Mathematics curriculum.
