In key stage 3, pupils have seven lessons of maths per fortnight. Children will be placed either in a top set or a mixed ability class. Pupils follow the national curriculum. Pupils will be assessed every half term and classes will be reviewed to ensure pupils are grouped appropriately according to their ability and performance. In the summer term all pupils in Key Stage 3 will sit the national numeracy tests. There are two papers for each year group, a procedural paper and a numerical reasoning paper.
