Liverpool Counts

West Derby School has been accepted onto an exciting new pilot scheme called ‘Liverpool Counts Quality Mark’.

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.

Liverpool Counts Award

Following on from the work done on improving numeracy in the school last year, the Maths department were successful in achieving the Silver Award for the Liverpool Counts Quality mark. The inititaive was to raise pupils' awareness of the importance of numeracy, not just in the school environment but also in everyday life. 

This is a great achievement for the department and now the focus is on working towards progressing to the Gold Award when the numeracy standards are assessed in the summer of 2018.
