In years 7 and 8 all students will follow the White Rose scheme of learning. The majority of our local primary schools follow this scheme and by transitioning a common language and layout it allows an excellent introduction to secondary school life.
Sets are flexibly based around attainment, taking into account their English and Science prior achievement.
KS4 at Ursuline is taught from year 9. This allows the Maths department to focus on GCSE content a little earlier and in more depth.
We try, where possible, to keep the teacher consistent from this point. This allows the teachers to build strong relationships with the students and their parents/carers.
From year 10 we try not to move any students around. A side effect of this is that students sitting the higher paper will be fixed. There are rare times where we can make movements but these will need to be discussed with the Head of Maths.
