Harrow Maths Hub
We consider maths a strength at Elmgrove and this was confirmed in our recent Ofsted inspection (November 2017). Below is an extract from the short inspection letter (November 2017)
“Mathematics is now a real strength of the school. Teachers have good subject knowledge and high expectations of pupils. Work in books shows that pupils are able to apply their skills and knowledge to solve numerical and practical problems. Pupils talk about the mathematics they are learning with genuine enthusiasm and excitement.
The most able pupils, including the most able disadvantaged pupils, are articulate learners of mathematics. They are confident when talking about the approaches they choose to solve investigative problems. Pupils regularly receive appropriate challenge in mathematics. They demonstrate a deep understanding of concepts and a good proportion of them achieve at greater depth. This strength is recognised by the local authority, designating the school as a mathematics hub to support other schools.”
