Prestwick Academy is fully committed to raising the standards of attainment and achievement for all learners. Regardless of the learner’s stage, we consider the ongoing development of numeracy to be a key driver in improving overall standards of attainment. We also believe that effectively delivering improvements in numeracy across our curriculum will assist in bridging the attainment gap. 

To do this we are seeking to develop numeracy skills by consistent and accurate application across learning. This should improve understanding and retention of basic numerical skills.

You will find three key resources which can help your child to develop their numeracy skills.  The resources have been designed in a way that Parents/Carers can work alongside their child to develop their confidence and skills in numeracy.
