Mr P Lloyd
The Mathematics Department at Cwmbran High School is situated in the upper school building and currently comprises of 8 classrooms. We also have laptops that are used within the department, making use of the many online maths websites including mymaths and mathswatch.
Our departments success is built on engaging, quality teaching and learning in lessons, with challenge and progress being at the heart of our lesson planning.
We support and improve our students’ numeracy/number skills by starting every lesson with a number starter and encourage our students to use both non-calculator and calculator based methods appropriately with confidence.
We monitor our students’ progress closely every half term to ensure everyone is working to fulfil their potential. We set homework regularly and all pupils’ complete assessments every half term. We support our students with additional lessons at GCSE and extra revision time after school, and all our students have access to the online resources from mathswatch and mymaths.
We are a very approachable department and depend on good communication links with pupils, parents and staff to allow our pupils hard work to be worthwhile and their achievements celebrated. To help us achieve this you can follow us on twitter! @CwmbranHSMaths
