Curriculum Intent

Our curriculum intent is to understand there is a purpose to Maths beyond the classroom.

Being able to recognise the importance of Mathematics in life and in society will equip students with the knowledge and ability to solve real life problems. We aim to inspire students to become deep, independent and analytical learners which will enable them to have the resilience to solve everyday problems. Our curriculum is designed to give our students the best opportunities in both employment and personal growth by focusing on fluency and reasoning and problem solving. Most career options require the ability to think logically and quantitatively in order to analyse and solve problems. Throughout our curriculum we place a real emphasis on incorporating these skills into our daily lessons. We place a real emphasis on teaching Mathematics from a first principle basis to allow students to gain a deeper understanding.

Numeracy is integral to developing confidence and competence with numbers and measures across the curriculum. Students get the opportunity to practice key mathematical skills in form time as part of our numeracy framework across all year groups.

Mathematics is critical in Science, Technology and Engineering and necessary for the advancement of our future generations. At Grace Academy Coventry we want our students to develop an appreciation of the beauty of Mathematics as well as a sense of enjoyment and curiosity for the subject.

Students have the opportunity to explore and extend their range of mathematical skills in A level Further Maths. Students will study 3 overarching themes: mathematical argument, language & proof, mathematical problem solving and modelling. This will ensure that our students are well prepared for the world of work or further study.
