Countdown to Number Day for the NSPCC

The NSPCC’s Number Day is back and making it count for children on 5 December 2014, encouraging and celebrating learning through maths whilst raising money to end cruelty to children across the UK.

Number Day helps primary and secondary school teachers deliver inspiring and interactive maths lessons alongside fundraising activities.

Some of the resources have been created in partnership with Oxford University Press and will include number-crunching favourites like “Be the Boss” and updated versions of “Who Wants to be a Mathionnaire?” in addition to new activities, which this year include early years.

Pupils of all ages and abilities can participate in Number Day whether their strength is tackling tangents and fathoming fractions or showcasing their creative side with “Dress up for Digits”.

By taking part in Number Day 2014 and raising money, schools will be helping the NSPCC to protect children all year round through its projects and services including ChildLine, the UK’s free, confidential 24-hour helpline and online service for children and young people.

To register your school or provision, visit the NSPCC website where curriculum-based maths resources will be available to download from mid-October.

Advice should, of course, be sought at each stage in dealing with these matters. Please call our Legal Advice Helpline from Stephensons to speak with an advisor who will be more than happy to discuss individual circumstances with you, contacts details for Stephensons are in your policy documentation or please call one of the dot2dot team for more information.
