We are a thriving department. Almost all staff members have access to an interactive whiteboard, and the department has invested in a comprehensive package of interactive software called ‘Maths Workout’. Every pupil will have the opportunity to use this software during break time and lunch time, and some will even be able to use it during ‘Skills’ lessons.
