At Lincoln Christs Hospital School we believe that Numeracy should not just be delivered in a Mathematics lessons. Subjects across curricular can contribute to the development and enhancement of students numeracy skills.
The importance of whole school numeracy at Lincoln Christs Hospital School:
- Many subjects depend on students having competence in basic numeracy skills.
- Numeracy skills enable students to understand and interpret numerical and analytical information. This facilitates improvement in students' abilities to make their own judgments and to draw sensible conclusions from information.
- If students' numeracy skills are not developed and used they could miss out on the opportunity to develop the level of understanding of some topics or subjects at the level expected for their age.
- Without basic numeracy skills, students can lack both personal and social adequacy which is a recipe for failure and low esteem.
