Numeracy

All Pupils should experience a rich numeracy learning environment and ensuring that all of our young people are numerate is a very important curricular responsibility of this school. All of our subjects have exposure to numeracy and are expected to develop this throughout their courses as part of Curriculum for Excellence.

  • Our pupils ought to leave our school with a level of numeracy which allows them to cope with the demands of life beyond school.
  • We try to ensure that there is a consistent approach to the development of numeracy for all pupils.

A numerate person should be able to:

  • Use money with confidence.
  • Use multiplication tables.
  • Handle time with confidence
  • Use different types of measurement
  • Understand ratio, proportion, fractions and percentages
  • Interpret graphs, maps and tables
