Maths

St Mary’s are proud to be taking part in Liverpool Counts Quality Mark and the whole school is working together to raise the status of maths and improve the attitudes towards it. Maths is a life skill and a subject that impacts on all areas of our day.

The aims of the project are:

  • to raise the profile of Numeracy / Mathematics
  • to create a positive ethos and develop a ‘risk taker’ mentality.
  • to change the culture of thinking around Mathematics
  • to make real life connections
  • to understand the role Mathematics plays in future life choices
  • to show the link Mathematics plays across all subjects
  • to share and celebrate the enjoyment of Numeracy / Mathematics.
