As an ongoing commitment to maths and the teaching of numeracy for life skills, Booker Avenue Infant School is enrolled on Liverpool Counts. This is a Quality Mark which gives schools the tools needed to evaluate and improve on maths teaching and maths opportunities in Liverpool schools.
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 towards numeracy and mathematics which are prevalent in many areas of our society.
The aim is 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.
The LCQM supports teachers and other adults in 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.
