Numbers Count (FREE TO ATTEND!!!! Schools are just asked to cover all supply costs.)

Numbers Count transforms mathematical learning for the lowest achieving children. Number Count is an intensive teacher-led programme for children in Y1 to Y3 who have the greatest difficulty with mathematics.

How does it work?

A specially trained Numbers Count teacher gives children at least three 30-minute lessons a week for a term, individually or in twos or threes. After a detailed diagnostic assessment, the teacher plans a tailored programme for each child. Rigorous, active lessons focus on number and calculation, helping children to develop skills and attitudes that will ensure good progress.

Impact on Achievement

Over 50,000 children in Years 1 to 11 have been supported by Numbers Count in 2,500 schools:

  • They made an average Number Age gain of 17 months in only 4 months – over 4 times the expected progress
  • 95% of them showed more confidence and interest in learning mathematics in class after Numbers Count.
  • 73% of those pupils achieved national expectations at the end of Key Stages 1 and 2, despite not being predicted to do so.

Session 1 – Mon 4th October – 1pm to 3pm – Face to face

Training for senior mental health leads to be made available from autumn 21

The DfE will offer schools and colleges a grant to pay for senior mental health lead training from autumn 2021.

While many schools and colleges already have a mental health lead, the knowledge and skills they have varies, and with mental health and wellbeing being a top priority for schools and colleges, our goal is to provide senior leads with the development they need to lead change and develop or introduce a whole school or college approach to wellbeing and mental health.

Grants will be available for up to a third of schools and colleges in England between September 2021 and March 2022, with the aim of all schools and colleges benefitting by 2025.

Ahead of this, we are encouraging schools and colleges to identify a senior lead with the capacity to lead change within their setting. Existing senior leads might start to consider their own personal development priorities and confidence to deliver change across each of the PHE principles, as this will help them, from September, to opt-in for a grant and identify the most appropriate learning from a list of quality assured courses.
