Satisfying UK Government Requirements for Remote Education Provision with Complete Mathematics
Written by Josh George Sunday, 27 September 2020
With the continued disruption to schools across the UK, the government has set out what type of provision institutions must put in place to prepare for pupil absences, as well as local or national lockdowns. Find the full guidance here.
Below we highlight each provided government condition and how the Complete Mathematics platform satisfies the requirements. If you are already a Complete Mathematics user you can be confident in your existing provision.
If you require something to fulfil these requirements for your institution then you can book in a demo with one of our School Support team — we would be happy to talk you through how Complete Mathematics can support your department and pupils both in the current disruption and beyond. Use your catch up funding to make a real impact on your school’s blended learning environment.
The Government Conditions:
Complete Mathematics is built on our fully coherent and supported curriculum for both teachers & pupils to access, which is fully supported with online or offline resources, as well as tutorial videos, so you can provide a seamless transition between in-school and at-home learning.
Teacher and pupil platform accounts are fully accessible online, so resources & assigned work can be accessed from home as well as at school.
One single subscription includes unlimited teacher and pupil accounts, for full and unrestricted access across your institution. The platform is used for planning, teaching, assessing, feedback and reporting, and we offer a free department-wide training session for all subscriber institutions, ontop of the ongoing support available with our knowledge base and live chat.
All worksheets, quizzes, and tests can be downloaded and printed. Offline work can be added to the platform to retain complete tracking of submissions, and inclusion of results into the platform analytics.
All users can login from home and have access to the entire journey of the school mathematics, with digital manipulatives embedded to explore mathematics at an accessible level, on any device.
Build your lesson plans and assign work for your pupils to access online. Monitor, track, and feedback on submissions remotely. Set specific work for particular pupil groups within classes including high-attaining pupils or intervention groups. Plus, generate bespoke quizzes to provide personalised, automated remediation activities based on each pupil’s results.
The Complete Mathematics curriculum is a single, continuous, coherent and fully supported learning journey through school mathematics. Assign your bespoke scheme of work to each class to follow and track progression throughout each year. Plan lessons to be accessed by pupils both ahead of time, on the day, and retrospectively as desired.
Each granular objective in Complete Mathematics is supported by: an overview and context, common misconceptions, example questions with worked solutions, key learning points, models, didactics, resources, & linked tutorial videos. These materials are specific to each granule, and there are 1800+ objectives across the whole journey. Choose which objective(s) you want to teach in a lesson, and pick the materials you want to include in your teaching, fully accessible to pupils on their side of the platform.
Easily view each groups scheme of work teaching progression. Set assignments with visible due dates, teacher notes and feedback. ‘I Can’ statements provide self-assessed progression for each pupil, as well as teacher selected pupil progression for each objective of the scheme. Plus, see a classes assessment results by scheme of work unit to strenghten your evaluation.
Generate weekly, low-stakes, formative quizzes based on recently taught content, automatically marked and showing you in real time how successfully each idea has been grasped. Analysis of all previous results data highlights the key recently taught objectives that are not yet secure and require further teaching before moving forward, so you can add these objectives to your next maths lessons. Pupils can access immediate remediation guidance on each objective they have struggled with within each quiz taken, with opportunity to learn and practice beyond their lessons.
Use the same continuous timetable, seamlessly transitioning between in-school or at-home learning, preparing lessons and quizzes in the same space for pupils to access in a familiar way, at a familiar time. Use the same continuous learning journey, no matter the disruption in environment.
Complete Mathematics covers all of school mathematics from Primary to Further Education and is fluid to each pupils stage of mathematical maturation. Each pupils MathsAge progression is tracked, with bespoke guidance available for each pupil at every point.
