To be numerate is to confidently and effectively use mathematics to meet the everyday demands
of life. This is the aim for all pupils in our school and their families.

Numeracy enables you to develop logical thinking and reasoning strategies in your daily life. We need numeracy to solve problems and make sense of time, numbers, patterns and shapes for activities like cooking, reading a map or bill, reading instructions and even playing sport. At Archbishop Blanch that's why we strive to ensure that lessons right across the curriculum present and develop opportunities for exploring maths.
Here you will find information on all the numeracy activities past and present that have been taking place at ABS. This page also provides fun challenges for all and support material for parents and students.
