Mathematics @ LSA

Welcome to the Mathematics Department:

At LSA we want every child to be successful in Mathematics and we are determined to maximise the attainment of all our students, regardless of their prior attainment.  We believe in challenge for all our students and promoting independence and a love of learning.

At LSA we aim to stimulate students’ curiosity, interest and enjoyment in Mathematics.  We use a variety of teaching and learning methods to raise the achievement of students.  We provide opportunities for pupils to develop transferable Mathematical skills which will also aid their progress across the curriculum.

At LSA we aim for all our students to make at least three levels of progress.  We have an established intervention program and a strong team of specialist support staff which work with small groups of students that have a difference between their targets and current attainment.

Gifted and Talented

Our more able pupils are entered for the junior and intermediate UK Maths Challenges. We also participate in locally run Maths challenges and events.
