Numeracy

Numeracy is the ability to understand and use maths in daily life, at home, work or school. Numeracy doesn’t mean complex skills, like algebra, it means being confident enough to use basic maths in real-life situations. Numeracy is as important as literacy – it’s sometimes called ‘mathematical literacy’ – and we need both to be successful later in life. All teachers at HOH are teachers of numeracy. Departments work alongside their numeracy ambassadors. Working together, we can achieve a culture of nurturing and promoting numeracy across the academy.
