Numeracy and Mathematics

Numeracy is about being able to understand and use numbers in a range of situations.

A child or young person’s everyday routine offers many opportunities and experiences to practise and apply their numeracy skills in real and meaningful ways.  There are many ways that you can build learning activities into everyday routines to support your child’s numeracy skills.

We have included some ideas on how to support your child with Numeracy and Mathematics.








Mathematics is important in our everyday life. It equips us with the skills we need to interpret and analyse information, simplify and solve problems, assess risk and make informed decisions.

Our numeracy and mathematics programme use a range of interactive teaching approaches to support learning.  Teachers use Heinemann, TeeJay and Primary Maths in Action resources.  ICT is also used to enhance learning experiences.  Mental maths strategies are taught and revised at the start of each lesson, this is also a daily activity in our homework programme.

The St Luke’s Cluster has developed a consistant method of teaching certain skills and agreed on language we will use for introducing strategies and skills.
