Students are set at the beginning of Year 7 on the basis of their KS2 Maths SATs score. At the end of the first half term they will take an assessment which may confirm a need to adjust the set they are in. Movement between sets can take place at any point in the year if a pupil is working at a level above or below the rest of the class. This decision is made by the class teacher on the basis of classworks, homeworks and test results.
All students should bring a calculator, ruler, compass and protractor to school in addition to the standard equipment needed.
Formal assessments will take place throughout the year which will inform students of the level that they are currently working at.
