Numeracy

Our aim with the Douglas Academy Numeracy group is to improve confidence and fluency in maths for children, young people and parents to raise attainment and achievement across learning.

Improving understanding of maths and numeracy for young people gives them the very best chance of succeeding in life. The National Research and Development Centre strongly links poor numeracy skills with unemployment and poor personal finance decisions; a negative social impact on individuals as well as issues with both physical and mental health. We need your support to help transform and promote positive attitudes to maths and numeracy and highlight the value of maths/numeracy as an essential skill for every career.
