Vale of York Academy @ValeYorkAcademy@Morenoeverett1 No worries, maybe he nipped out during the photo and just missed it. We have entered 2 teams of 4 in to the ks3 and ks4 competition for badminton so hoping for those who attend and want to play to be able to, unless we get lots more turn up then we will need to select. Thanks.2 days ago
Vale of York Academy @ValeYorkAcademy@Morenoeverett1 Hi, this was who was present this Monday evening after school so he must have missed it this week. If not maybe he was getting changed as I took it before heading out on year 8 football match! Sorry - next time. 👍2 days ago
The Mathematics department aims to provide and develop the key skills required for young people to go out in to the world and succeed. Mathematics provides a toolkit for life, which equips students with not only numerical ability, but also more importantly the techniques and approaches needed to solve problems thrown their way. Mathematics is so much more than operations with numbers, it is the ability to assimilate and identify key information and use it to provide answers.
Key Stage 3 Curriculum overview
In KS3 all students will learn how to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding of mathematical methods and concepts including number, algebra, ratio, proportion and rates of change, geometry and measures, probability and statistics. Key Stage 3 is vital for developing all the essential skills needed at GCSE level.
A committed team of maths teachers at the Vale of York Academy strive to help every child develop a love of Mathematics.
Homework will be set weekly. A scientific calculator is required for all pupils from year 7, (we recommend parents purchase a Casio Calculator). Geometry sets are desirable.
From Year 7 students are set using their KS2 maths results. Regular assessment points throughout the year review these sets.
Pupils begin the GCSE syllabus in Year 9.
We follow the Edexcel 9-1 GCSE course at either Higher (grades 4 – 9) or Foundation (grades 1-5) depending on the individual needs of the pupil.
Maths GCSE consists of three 1 hour 30 min exams (1 non calculator, 2 calculator) sat in Year 11.
Students will be regularly tested throughout KS4 developing exam skills to enable them to achieve their maximum in the final exams in Year 11.
Useful revision resources
www.mathswatch.co.uk is an excellent resource where pupils are able to watch videos on every topic covered in the maths curriculum across KS3 and KS4.
Every student has a personal login so they can access any homework tasks set by teachers, as well as being able to do revision in their own time.

Once again our thanks to all schools who travelled from across North Yorkshire to compete in our @SkyTryRL@Schools_RL festival.
With a very impressive standard on display the future is bright!
