## Curriculum Intent

- Educate students on the origins of mathematics and to view it as a work in progress, the future discoveries of which will invariably shape how we view the world
- Giving purpose to the theory of mathematics through application to some of history’s most intriguing problems
- To promote high cultural capital by encouraging students to pursue careers in maths and other STEM subjects, which would enable them to make a positive contribution to society
- To provide students who are lower attaining on entry with high levels of financial literacy that they can adapt into everyday life, such as managing monthly budgets by taking into account rent, mortgage, gas, electric and food bills.
- To develop an inquisitive mindset through a desire to understand the deep roots of mathematics, thus encouraging students to foster a lifelong love for the subject
- To inspire students to pursue further education in maths, hence lifting students out of an area of poverty and into an environment where they build a high quality of life for themselves and their family.
- Provide students from deprived families with appropriate mathematical equipment so that lack of family income does not become a barrier to learning
- To empower students to solve problems in more than one way by their ability to interleave topics and to treat the question “why?” as the most powerful tool to conceptually understanding a given branch of mathematics. This will challenge students continuously to become more confident, resilient and reflective learners
- Promoting communication skills by integrating opportunities in lesson to reason and debate – a skill many students lack in an area where oracy on entry is below national average
- Instil an ethos where students are encouraged to work independently and collaboratively to break down complex mathematical problems into small steps
