Our school is part of the first cohort of Liverpool schools working towards the Liverpool Counts Quality Mark. Each school has a Numeracy Champion who will support, coordinate and report on the progress of the challenge and celebrate successes. Mrs Walsh is our Numeracy Champion.

‘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, financial, 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.’
