Liverpool Counts Quality Mark

 

St Anthony of Padua Primary School is pleased to announce that we are participating in an exciting new pilot project in Liverpool to promote Mathematics in our city.

 

The aims of the project are:

 

  • to raise the profile of Numeracy / Mathematics
  • to change the culture of thinking around Numeracy / Mathematics
  • to make real life connections
  • to understand how Numeracy / Mathematics can affect life choices
  • to make connections with other subjects
  • to share and celebrate the enjoyment of Numeracy / Mathematics

 

We will, therefore, be holding events throughout this school year to help everyone to have fun and improve their mathematics skills.

 

The dates of events will be on our website so please come along and help us to achieve these aims!
