Every Child Counts


every child counts


Every Child Counts helps schools to raise achievement in mathematics through:

  • Intervention support for children who struggle with mathematics

  • Developing teaching approaches to raise mathematics standards for all children

The programmes provide professional development and training for school leaders, teachers and teaching assistants.

Numbers Count programmes are delivered by teachers. They transform mathematics for the lowest achieving children AND raise standards for all children. They are intensive interventions for children in Years 1-8 who have the greatest difficulties with mathematics. The specially trained teacher supports other staff in school.

1stClass@Number programmes are delivered by either teachers or teaching assistants and raise attainment in number and early calculation. Three programmes are available to schools:

Becoming 1stClass@Number – for children who need further support to secure the Early Learning Goal for Number.

1stClass@Number 1 – for children who need further support at the level of the Year 1 curriculum

1stClass@Number 2 – for children who need further support at the level of the Year 2 curriculum

Success@Arithmetic programmes are delivered by teachers or teaching assistants and improve pupils’ understanding of number and written calculations. Two programmes are available:

Success@Arithmetic 1: Number Sense – for pupils in Years 3-5 who need support to understand the number system and develop fluency with number facts

Success@Arithmetic 2: Calculation – for pupils in Years 5-8 who need support to understand and develop fluency with formal written methods

Talk 4 Number programme is delivered by a teaching assistant and develops mathematical language and thinking. High quality professional development enables a teaching assistant to support pupils in Years 3 and 4 to talk fluently about their mathematics.
