Numeracy at Woodrush
This page is designed to encourage all parents to engage with Numeracy at home.
“If parents engage with their children's education,the attainment of the child will increase by 15% no matter what the social background of the family” - Professor Charles Deforges
Children whose parents take an active interest in their child's education make greater progress at school.
Parents give children their first experience of maths, and it is important for the child that this is positive. Children who hear 'I can't do maths' or 'I was never any good at maths and I'm OK' are likely to start believing maths is unimportant.
Many parents feel un-confident in their own maths ability, and therefore unable to support their children. This page is here to try to help with these issues.
