Progression for Maths

"By using the same approach across the school, progress in other subjects is being measured and tracked using the same system which makes comparing and contrasting the progress of pupils across subjects more reliable. So my focus is more on the trustworthyness and how reliable the information that we get is."
- Andrew Scott, Head of Maths, King Harold Academy

Andrew Scott has already implemented the Progression Service within his daily teaching, listen to what he has to say.


Our Maths Progression Scale is a reliable, easy to use tool to track students’ progress over Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4. It comprises of 12 steps ranging from low (1) to high (12) challenge. We anticipate that the average student will enter year 7 working at the 3rd or 4th step. The expectation is that a student will make one Step of progress a year.

The Maths Progression Scale and Map covers both GCSE and International GCSE. 

A range of assessments, mapped to the Progression Scale, can be used to support in-school summative reporting. Take a look at the full range of assessments available now and the assessments coming soon. 

Why does the Progression Scale have 12 steps? Why not nine steps to align to the new GCSE 9-1 grades?
