We’re counting down to Number Day 2018!

Dear Parents,

We are delighted to be supporting the NSPCC by taking part in their Number Day on Friday 2 February 2018.

Children deserve an equal start in life

The NSPCC believes that all children deserve a childhood free from harm but, sadly, that’s not the case for many children. That’s why the NSPCC is fighting for every childhood and working to help keep children safe from abuse.

The NSPCC needs our support. By raising money, we can help to fund their vital services such as Childline – the helpline that’s always there for children and young people whatever their problem or concern.

Making maths meaningful

Number Day is a great way to make maths fun and bring about a positive, ‘can-do’ attitude towards it.

On 2 February we will be using fun curriculum-based maths challenges designed by the NSPCC, Oxford University Press and Maths on Toast. To help raise money for the NSPCC, we are asking pupils to donate £1 to take part in these activities and it will be a NON UNIFORM day.

It all adds up

We’re looking forward to all the fun of Number Day, and we really appreciate your support. All the money we raise will make an enormous difference to children today and help change the lives of children tomorrow.
