New Resource: Developing Revision and Study Skills

Many students are unsure how to revise effectively for mathematics examinations and assessments. Often teachers spend a lot of valuable lesson time (i.e. learning time) 'doing revision' with classes.

This package is aimed at teachers of mathematics striving to develop those study skills in their students.

Practical guidance is offered to develop the skills and increase students ability to study and revise more independently as they approach GCSE.

The resources were trialled in a small cohort of Lancashire schools and began to show impact after two terms.

All the strategies disucssed in the papckage can be applied across a full range of subjects.

The removal of national curriculum levels has led to some uncertainty about how schools and Mathematics Departments can be confident in tracking pupil progress; assessing pupil performance in a way which is both rigorous and accurate, and using assessment as an effective planning and teaching tool.

 Designed to fill the gap created by the removal of National Curriculum Levels,

The Lancashire Assessment Programme for Secondary Mathematics offers schools an assessment model that provides:

  • an asessment programme from Key Stage 3 to GCSE
  • objective led assessment criteria in line with GCSE from 2015
  • a progression ladder from Year 7 to 11 which supports teachers' planning and AfL
  • advice on how to administer assessments
  • in-house moderation approaches
  • standardising opportunities to support quality control across schools

Trialled throughout Lancashire schools before its launch in the Summer of 2015, this programme offers the structure and rigour required of schools to track pupils' progress and plot progression in line with expectations at GCSE.

The programme is now embedded in schools across Lancashire and beyond. Schools wishing to adopt the programme can arrange bespoke training by contacting alison.kenyon@lancashire.gov.uk
