We are currently working towards the Liverpool Counts Numeracy for Life Quality Mark (LCQM). Our aim is to raise the profile of mathematics throughout the school and our wider school family!
The Quality Mark has been developed by Liverpool Learning Partnership and School Improvement Liverpool to promote positive attitudes to mathematics and numeracy as an essential life skill.
‘The aim of the Quality Mark is to tackle the negative attitudes in society towards numeracy and mathematics. We want to promote a culture where people understand the impact good numeracy skills and mathematics qualifications can have on the social, health and employment aspects of their lives. We also aim to support adults in schools to encourage pupils to make connections in their lessons to real life contexts and with other areas of their school experiences.’

How can you help?
– We all use Maths every day but if you would be willing to discuss about how you use Maths in your job or hobby, we would love you to come and share your stories with the children. Please see Mr Power if you can help. We really want children to see the connection between maths and real life situations.
– Be positive about Maths!
– Point out the Maths in everyday life – include your child in activities such as using money, cooking and travelling.
