The aims of the scheme are
• To raise standards in mathematics and numeracy with fun and joy of number at its heart
• To challenge perceptions and change attitudes towards number and mathematics
• To raise the profile of numeracy using activities, events and resources based on real-life
• To bring relevance to numeracy through problem solving demonstrating it is an essential skill
Our aim at West Derby School is to develop a positive attitude towards numeracy as an essential life skill not just something used in the classroom. We are working hard to implement this initiative and look forward to achieving our Quality Mark in July.
