The Liverpool Counts Quality Mark

The Liverpool Counts Quality Mark

The Liverpool Counts Quality Mark aims to raise standards in numeracy and mathematics by changing attitudes and perceptions through the delivery of the Liverpool Counts Quality Mark and the promotion of the importance of numeracy as a life skill through business links and cultural opportunities.

The agreed priorities of The Liverpool Counts Quality Mark are as follows:

  • To raise standards in mathematics and numeracy with fun and joy of number at the heart of all aspects of the strategy
  • To challenge perceptions and change attitudes towards number and mathematics
  • To raise the profile of numeracy through a range of activities, events and resources with an emphasis on the application to real life contexts
  • To bring relevance to numeracy through problem solving set in local contexts
  • To enhance the delivery of the new national curriculum at all key stages and the early years foundation stage
  • To secure a shared understanding between the phases of education with an agreed common mathematical language and transition projects
  • To promote the use of technology to engage learners
  • To involve parents and the local business and cultural communities
  • To creating a sustainable legacy of a love of numbers

 

Therefore, we will be holding events to help everyone have fun, improve their mathematical skills and help you to see how maths is used in real life.

TOP TIPS FOR PARENTS AND FAMILIES

Be positive about maths. Don’t say things like, “I can’t do maths” or “I hated maths at school”; your child might start to think like that themselves.

Point out the maths in everyday life. Include your child in activities involving maths such as using money, cooking and travelling.

Praise your child for effort rather than talent – this shows them that by working hard they can always improve.
