Burton Borough School  Mathematics Curriculum
We teach mathematics to develop understanding, and to support students to become numerate, inquisitive, and resilient members of society.
Mathematics is a common language used across the globe to explain the world, and confident mathematicians have a wonderful ability to solve problems and think deeply about strategies and approaches to problems.
Our maths curriculum is built on the following principles:
 All our students are capable of being successful in mathematics, although their journeys to success may happen at different rates.
 Mathematics is a hierarchical subject; to excel each building block needs to be secure, and regularly revisited.

Curriculum Plan – Y11 Higher GCSE Maths (Edexcel) 

Intent We teach mathematics to develop understanding, and to support students to become numerate, inquisitive, and resilient members of society. Mathematics is a common language used across the globe to explain the world, and confident mathematicians have a wonderful ability to solve problems and think deeply about strategies and approaches to problems. Our maths curriculum is built on the following principles:
