S1 to S3


All pupils will continue to work through the Curriculum for Excellence (CfE) Levels for mathematics and numeracy as part of their

Broad General Education.


This follows on from their work done in primary school, where it is anticipated that most pupils will have covered and be secure in Second Level mathematics and numeracy by the end of

Primary 7.


The following guide will help form an understanding of how most pupils are expected to progress in mathematics in the Junior Phase

(S1 to S3):-

  • Secure at Third Level – by December of S2.
  • Working on Fourth Level experiences and outcomes – by April of S3.

Notes: Some pupils may be reported as being secure at Fourth Level before the end of S3. Some pupils may need more time to become secure at Third Level.
