Welcome to Bury CE Mathematics Department:
We are a strong team of 7 specialist Mathematics teachers with a subject specialist Teaching Assistant. We have 6 maths classrooms all fitted with interactive teaching boards and projectors.
Year 7 to 10
We follow the White Rose Maths Secondary Schemes of work for Year 7 to 10. The scheme has been influenced, inspired and informed by the work of leading maths researchers and practitioners across the world.
The aims of the scheme are to build a deep culture of understanding, confidence and competence in Maths, a culture that will produce strong secure learning and real progress in the students that attend our school.
The mantra of White Rose Maths is the ‘Everyone Can Do Maths: Everyone Can’ a mantra that we the Maths department fully endorse.
We intend to shape all our students into assured, happy, resilient Mathematicians helping them to become independent reflective thinkers – not just in Maths, but across the whole curriculum.
Access to the schemes of work for all years is available by the following link.https://whiterosemaths.com/resources/secondary-resources/secondary-sols/
In addition, here are links to resources for all the units covered in Years 7 to 10.
At GCSE we offer the Edexcel Linear A GCSE route and we use Pearson textbooks in year 11 in addition to other resources that are the most appropriate and effective for teaching Mathematics.
All Year 11 students will receive a maths exam paper every week that is started in class and completed as independent study. These are an opportunity for students to revise their skills, retrieve their maths knowledge and practice exam techniques. Following each paper students will complete an analysis sheet RAG rating the questions. The analysis sheets give the students a brief explanation as to how to do each question so that they can make improvements on the work they have previously completed.
Year 11 revision – Mathematics – Edexcel Exam Board
Here is a list of resources to aid you with your revision:
Formulae to learn:
Century Learning: This assesses current ability and skills and sets out a learning path of nuggets specifically to your needs. The nuggets have learning videos to teach you, then it will reassess your skills and reset your path.
GCSE Pod: Learning pod casts that teach and revise skills with assessments to assess your skills.

Independent study support. All students have a Century Leaning account. This account provides all students with videos, presentation slides and continuing assessments. Students are set a ‘path’ of learning ‘nuggets’ according to the results of the diagnostic nuggets they should complete at the beginning of their course.
This path alters according to how they are progressing in each nugget or by the teacher when they set a nugget in line with what they have covered in class. Students can check their progress, practise skills and knowledge and learn content independently using this platform.
We enter the UKMT challenge competitions for Years 8 to 10 and often attend events hosted by Manchester University.
We also offer a Maths support session – this is available to all students where they can get more support from a Maths teacher and use the Maths department laptops.
