# Mathematics

## Our vision

- Focusing on learning
- Making learning permeate the outside world
- Making learning a dialogue
- To develop problem solving skills

We are proud of the improvements we have made over the past five years and wish to highlight our progress in both KS3 and KS4:

**Percentage of students achieving A* - C in Mathematics at GCSE level**

- 2012 - 86%
- 2013 - 81%
- 2014 - 75%

**Percentage of students achieving Level 5 and above in Mathematics at the end of Key stage 3**

- 2011 - 72%
- 2012 - 67%
- 2013 - 97%

Walworth Mathematics Department is made up of 10 experienced and committed teachers.

The lessons are taught in well equipped rooms across the school. Each room has an active inspire software and the Mathematics Teachers utilise an extensive range of Mathematical software to facilitate the learning of our students.

As an ARK Academy, we have very high expectations of our pupils in terms of behaviour and achievement. It is our belief that every child can succeed and this is fundamental to our recent examination success.

Students are taught mathematics in sets by ability. This is proven to enable every pupil to maximise their own personal potential. A new topic is taught roughly every 2 weeks and at the end of all topics the pupils are tested and awarded both a percentage and a National Curriculum level or grade. From these test results, the teachers can carry out interventions where necessary and identify specific areas of weakness.

As part of the school policy, homework is set regularly. As a department, we make use of an additional online resource – Mymaths – to follow up and monitor student’s progress. With these, students who are away from school can keep in touch with their learning.
