ATTENDANCE GUIDANCE FOR PUPILS EXHIBITING SYMPTOMS OF COVID


In line with the DFE guidance, May 2022, pupils with the key symptoms of COVID-19, a high temperature or feeling unwell, should not attend school..

Children who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people. They can return to school when they no longer have a high temperature and they are well enough to attend. Pupils with a positive Covid-19 test should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 3 days.


Thank you for your co-operation.
Mr Botes

Mathematics

Mathematics is taught by specialist teachers and classrooms are located in one area of the school. The mathematics department at Broughton is regarded as one of the most successful mathematics departments in Lancashire. We also rate very highly in National figures and GCSE results have been outstanding year on year. Pupils enjoy learning in the department and accept the challenges set by teachers who have high expectations of each and every student.

Approaches to Teaching and Learning in Mathematics

Pupils use mini-whiteboards consistently in mathematics lessons so that teachers can gauge understanding and adjust lessons accordingly. Paired-work gives the opportunity for pupils to discuss mathematics in their lessons. As well as Declarative (‘I know that’) and Procedural (‘I know how’) knowledge, pupils are taught about Conditional knowledge (‘I know when’). This gives pupils the ability to reason and solve problems by knowing which is the best strategy to employ when addressing a problem. Pupils have a rigid structure of homework tasks to complete. Classes get a mixture of written and online tasks each week for their homework. Online tasks are set on the award winning Hegarty Maths and Dr Frost Maths platforms. Our more able pupils are entered for competitions, for example, the UKMT Challenge which is organised by Leeds University.
