We asked teachers “Why offer Functional Maths?”

Last month, we asked 63 schools and FE colleges about their motivation for potentially offering the new Functional Maths qualification. Here’s a snapshot of their responses:

  • 75% of respondents believed that learning Functional Maths is inherently useful for students
  • 55% said that the Functional Maths qualification will be a useful way of delivering the Functional Elements of the GCSE course
  • 29% believe that Functional Maths is likely to be an important part of the School Report Card
  • 56% said Functional Maths is important because it’s a necessary requirement for a full Diploma
