% has been low consistently Behaviour can be poor Pupils are not reaching 3 levels of progress Pressure is on the dept to get % A to C in maths into the 70's. We are in the low 50's. We have tried: Intervention programmes My Maths Mathswatch Past papers The area in which the school is is a poor, socially deprived one Pupils' behaviour is controlled by a positive discipline system Majority of maths teaching is controlled, silent and everyone does the same method. It is this way due to past poor behaviour. Now, I have a dreadful task get a class of grade F's upto a "C" in about 8 weeks. No pressure here then! Any ideas apart from a treble gin and tonic and a padded cell My HOD is unapproachable and goes about ignoring people. All she does is criticise and locks away all the resources. It is costing me a fortune in printing inks from home. I wish to do the best I can for my class of "F"'s as they all want "C" grades. I'm running an extra revision class after school and trying to target C grade topics. What else can I do?
