Numeracy at Holly Lodge
At Holly Lodge Girls’ College, it is our belief that all teachers are teachers of numeracy. We are committed to developing numeracy skills in all subjects across the curriculum, believing that it will support the learning of all students and raise standards in every subject.
We therefore believe that:
- Numeracy is a right for all pupils
- Every teacher is responsible for the development of numeracy
- Numeracy should be developed across all areas of the curriculum.
How we promote numeracy at Holly Lodge
Every week, pupils complete a numeracy activity during form time. The Numeracy Challenge is a chance for the girls to put their mathematical fluency to the test, and further develop their mathematical reasoning and problem-solving skills.
This Is a competition between form groups and the form with the most points at the end of each term will win a prize, e.g. A free breakfast.
