Liverpool Counts Quality Mark

LCQM.jpg

The Liverpool Counts Quality Mark is part of a varied programme of strategies targeted at improving maths results for the city's children. The specific remit of the Quality Mark is to tackle the negative attitudes which are prevalent in many areas of our society towards numeracy and mathematics. We aim to challenge these widely held views and promote a culture where people readily 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 teachers and other adults in our schools to encourage pupils to make connections in their numeracy and mathematics lessons to real life contexts and with other areas of their school experiences.

 "A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new."
