Our curriculum is engaging and structured to build, interleave and consolidate the skills needed to prepare students for success and for life! Our ideal candidate will have the drive to deliver outstanding results across the key stages.
Maths at Mascalls Academy: Our curriculum has been designed using the content of the national curriculum as the starting point and is delivered under the framework of the IB Middle Years programme and Mathematics Mastery. Learning is sequenced to help learners build a narrative through different topics. These topics are then sequenced in a logical progression that allows learners to establish connections and draw comparisons. Multiple representations are carefully selected so that they are extendable within and between different areas of mathematics. Using these rich models encourages learners to develop different perspectives on a concept. The curriculum encourages the use of mathematical language to strengthen conceptual understanding by enabling our students to explain and reason using the correct language.
