Statistics Intent, Implementation & Impact


At Boldon School, all aspects of the school ethos, ‘Innovate, Focus and Achieve’ are underpinned across each subject area. In English, we strive to embed these principles within our curriculum:

Innovate: To create innovative and progressive schemes of work which are well-sequenced to ensure excellent student outcomes.

Focus: A clear drive and focus key threads for reading, writing and spoken language;
A relentless drive to sharpen key knowledge concepts and ensure understanding of portable themes.
To ensure that all lessons widen the scope and appreciation of grammar, vocabulary and subject content.

Achieve: The aim is to ensure proficiency in reading, writing and oracy; this is key to social mobility. Our robust curriculum is designed to build strong foundations in knowledge and understanding which lead to academic and personal success. We want our students to enjoy the subject, and be inspired to be innovative in their responses, to focus on skill acquisition and implementation and, ultimately, to achieve their true potential. Students will be well-skilled to succeed in their next steps, whether it be education, further training or the world of employment.

Each of our curriculum areas are carefully designed with the students at the heart of our thinking. The intent is for the framework for each programme of study in the National Curriculum to be well planned and sequenced to enable all students to build their knowledge and skills towards the agreed end points at each key stage. We consider how this is taught in order to support our students and ensure this is implemented effectively. For the desired impact to be reflected in the outcomes that students achieve through the education they have received.

This is embedded across each subject area: Stasistics


The statistics curriculum at Boldon School is designed to allow students to successfully sit a GCSE in year 10.  It is a key part of our drive to ensure students consider continuing to study mathematics beyond Key Stage 4. We aim to provide students access to more demanding problems and equip them with the skills they would need to be successful studying maths at A level.


Outstanding subject knowledge and strong teaching pedagogy is central to our art curriculum. Specialists are constantly available for guidance and support in all aspects of the planning and implementation. As a large and diverse subject area staff are supported

The statistics curriculum is designed to run alongside core maths lessons and compliment the parts of the specification that overlap. Students will be provided with opportunity to access more demanding problems to improve their fluency in the subject. 

The implementation of the curriculum depends on the continued delivery of high quality lessons from the department. Resources are created and shared by those teachers who are delivering the course. 

Students are assessed at each assessment point in later years in school using exam papers and graded against this benchmark and progress is tracked to ensure each student reaches their potential. Students are tracked against previous year groups and compared to subsequent ones to ensure no student’s progress stalls. 


Examination results, together with examination analysis and evaluations, are discussed through examination meetings with the Deputy Headteacher and the Headteacher. These are also reported to other senior leaders and the governing body to ensure challenge and accountability. The statistics GCSE is discussed within progress meetings which evaluate the data outcomes, following assessment periods. Student voice is used to survey the impact of the curriculum and evaluate the impact of those modules on our students’ learning and enjoyment; these outcomes are used to help reshape the curriculum, going forward.
