Since January Gove has come out making statements about maths education, but we seemed to have heard little about them since. Does anyone have any info 1) <u>Maths papers becoming harder from November 2012</u> - has anyone told us what this means for us yet. I know the papers were written a couple years ago, but will it have impact on grade boundaries 2) <u>Early Entry - Supposedley Gove meeting with Wilshaw to discuss.</u> They have met since he announnced it (we know from Gove's NAHT sppech yesterday). However we have heard nothing about impace. 3) <u>Double GCSE in maths.</u> Any idea whether pilot will continue beyond next year and/or plans for new double GCSE will be put into place. For example are pilot papers still being produced from June 2013. It seems we only ever get half a story. Gove makes an annoucment and then we hear nothing about it for months. All these things clearly have implications on teaching for next year.
