Dear Parents and Carers
As of the week beginning Monday 14 September, your daughter has been placed in a new Maths set. We
believe that it is vital that the students who are arriving at Rosebery from many different schools and
backgrounds, and with varying levels of confidence in Maths, are placed into sets as early as possible. The
girls were assessed in both their current mathematical knowledge and their problem solving skills. It is their
performance in these assessments that have dictated which set they have been placed in.
In Year 7, due to the timetable and the available teaching staff, we are able to split the students into four
sets, each containing 30 girls; these will also be their same sets for Science lessons. In Years 9, 10 and 11, we
have five sets, which allows a much greater amount of flexibility in the number of students in each group and
therefore the placing of students within them. This system has been adapted and refined over the past few
years, and we are confident that all the students at Rosebery are challenged and given the opportunity to
fulfil their full potential.
During both Years 7 and 8, we will be making regular adjustments to the sets based on the students’
performance in assessments, tests and general class work. We will continue to try and identify any students
who may benefit either from being pushed faster in a higher set, or by being allowed to gain more
confidence at the top of a lower set. Both of these actions can help to raise achievement and ensure that
all of the girls feel both challenged and supported.
The details of your daughter’s new set are as follows (please note there maybe changes to the days your
daughter has Maths and Science):
