Wednesday 17 May is National Numeracy Day – the UK’s only day dedicated to everyday maths.
It’s a day that celebrates the importance of numbers for children and adults alike, building brighter futures through confidence with numbers and inspiring everyone to improve their numeracy skills.
The charity National Numeracy has teamed up with celebrities and experts to create fun and engaging resources that will get children feeling good about numbers, with confidence boosting activities centered around rapping, dancing, baking, and money management.
We have lots of free, fun activities planned for your children to take part in at school, as well as resources they can use at home.
Number Heroes Competition (11 to 13): With our younger students, we’ll be sparking imaginations and conversations about using numbers and maths in our future dream jobs or hobbies. The lucky winners will receive a £50 voucher for themselves, as well as a £1,000 prize bundle for their school.
National Numeracy Challenge (13+): We’ll be encouraging our older students to improve their everyday maths skills and boost their number confidence with National Numeracy’s interactive online tool.
One of the best ways to support children to feel positive about numbers is to feel confident yourself. National Numeracy has lots of free resources to help adults, so you can support your children with numbers and maths and boost your own numeracy skills too!
Together, we can get the whole nation feeling good about numbers!
Please get in touch if you feel we can provide any additional support.

I am writing to let you know just how successful our PSHEE Focus Day was on Thursday 4th May. I am delighted to report that all students demonstrated exceptional behaviour throughout the day and engaged well with all the materials used during the activities. We received some outstanding feedback from our visiting speakers, which is a testament to the positive attitudes and commitment of our students.
Our Road Safety Advisor remarked,
‘The students – they are a credit to you all: their individual characteristics made my time spent with you shine.’
The topics for the day were Resilience, Road Safety, RSE – Consent, Vaping, Unifrog Careers Education Platform and finally PC Jason Fenn from West Mercia Constabulary. We are grateful to our visitors and thank them for their contributions towards a successful day. At The Corbet School, we value the feedback of our entire community as it helps us shape our curriculum to ensure we continue to provide the best education for our students. If you have any comments or suggestions regarding the PSHEE Focus Day I would be delighted to hear from you. Please contact me at email@example.com
Our students have also been given the opportunity to provide their own feedback on the day’s events via Satchel and we encourage them to do so.
Finally, I would like to inform you that there will be further focus days later in the term. Details of which will be forwarded to you accordingly.
Thank you as always for your continued support.
Mr A M Womble,
PSHE and Careers Education Lead
