Planning for progression in mathematics
These materials can be used to assist you in developing your own plans or those within your mathematics department. Example unit plans can be adapted, altered or developed to suit your particular context.
The Secondary Frameworks for English, Mathematics Science and ICT are resources designed to help secondary teachers to plan their teaching in these subjects. These Frameworks are aligned to the Programmes of Study Key Stages 3 and 4 set out in the statutory National Curriculum published in 2000. They reflect the curriculum and assessment orders and policy in place at the time of publication. These are currently under review and therefore this resource may be subject to change in the future in order to reflect new policy or legislation.
These are not new Frameworks. The overall structure and content of the Frameworks remain unchanged. The improvements which have been made to the presentation of the Frameworks on this website mean that: everything you need for planning is grouped together for ease of use.
The content of the Frameworks is not, and never has been, statutory. Use of these resources is optional and a decision for schools to make. Many teachers find the Frameworks provide a very clear aide to planning and teaching, setting out learning expectations in a way which is coherent and which promotes balance and progression. The Frameworks also give examples showing how teaching might be structured and sequenced alongside suggestions on how to assess learning and to identify the progress being made by pupils. The Frameworks are designed to reduce planning time in order to allow teachers to concentrate on the detail of the teaching and learning approaches they will use in the classroom.
Use this overview of the learning objectives to help you with planning and to set the pitch and expectation for your scheme of work. This covers mathematical processes and applications, number, algebra, geometry and measures, and statistics.
Find out how to use the learning objectives to inform your planning and day-to-day teaching. The learning objectives show progress from Year 7 to GCSE and can help secondary mathematics subject leaders plan for progression in the scheme of work. Teachers can use the objectives to define pitch and expectations and to support day-to-day planning.
These secondary mathematics resources can help subject leaders in developing a scheme of work. The resources include a curriculum map and a template to create a teaching calendar.
These blank templates and unit plan examples are part of the Framework for secondary mathematics. These resources will support subject leaders and teachers to plan effectively, by using strategies such as clustering learning objectives, sequencing lessons and day-to-day assessment.
