Liverpool Counts Quality Mark


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.

10 more 10 less 2

Year 3

Finding ten more and ten less.

Come Count with Me was a big hit with our parents. We then used base 10 in our maths work.

Year 4

TT Rockstars was a huge hit among all of our pupils in Year 4. We explored how to link maths to geography with directions. We have also been estimating and predicting. 

Year 5

We have been using maths to solve problems in real life. It has linked with our Saxon project (how long would it take you to light a fire in Saxon times?). Through creative maths we know that maths is everywhere. 

Year 6

Parents regularly complete maths activities with their children both fluent in 5 and fast maths. We had great fun in our number party day. We have learnt about how to budget and balance finances.
