S1-S3: Homework may be set after each lesson, depending on the lesson and the pace of the class. This may consist of completing questions from an exercise set in class or may be an extension task set from their booklet. For S1-3 this should take no longer than 10/15 minutes to complete. If a pupil is unable to complete the homework for whatever reason, we ask that a parent or guardian signs and dates their jotter. For S3 check-up exercises may be issued at the end of each topic, to be completed in a separate homework jotter. The check-up will then be marked by the class teacher and these marks will be recorded for use in tracking and monitoring reports.
S4-S6: Homework may be set after each lesson, depending on the lesson and the pace of the class. This will usually consist of the pupils completing an exercise from that day. The homework will be marked daily by the pupil and on a regular occasion the class teacher will check that homework has been completed. A check-up exercise may be issued at the end of each topic in a separate homework jotter. The check-up will then be marked by the class teacher. These marks will be recorded by the class teacher. If no formal homework is set by the class teacher, there is an expectation that pupils should be engaged in self-study. This can include reading over notes, working through past paper questions or making revision aids for assessments.
S1- The courses consists of 4 blocks of work, each block consists of two Numeracy topics and two Mathematics topics. After each block of work the pupils will undertake an assessment at level 2, level 2/3 or level 3.
S2- The course consists of 3 blocks of work, each block consists of two Numeracy topics and two Mathematics topics. After each block of work the pupils will undertake an assessment at level 3, level 3/4 or level 4.
Assessments in S3 will follow the whole school calendar. In session 23/24 there will be an assessment in December and then another assessment around March/April.

National 5/National 5 Applications/Higher/Advanced Higher: - Assessments will follow the whole school calendar, with the first assessment this year in September/October. This will be followed by an assessment in January and the final SQA exam in May. Any information on additional assessments will be shared with pupils in due course.
In addition to whole school assessments, pupils at N5 and above may also be required to sit unit assessments as a back-up. Revision and support for these assessments will be provided. These units are marked as pass/fail and can provide some UCAS tariff points and recognition of the work covered in class, should the pupil not achieve the result in the final exam that they are aiming for.
