Liverpool Counts Quality Mark                               

This year, St. Hugh’s is working towards achieving the 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 that 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.

At St. Hugh’s, we will continue to raise the profile of mathematics across all subjects and in the wider life of the school. We wish to encourage positive attitudes towards mathematics for all in our school community, making connections to real life contexts and celebrating our enjoyment of mathematics.

We will keep you updated regarding different maths events that will take place this year. In the meantime, if you would like some guidance into how you can support your own child at home, or improve your own confidence in maths, have a look at some of the links below.
