Helping Your Child with Maths

Every family can help their children with maths, you don't need to be an expert and we can help!

Developing number confidence and a positive attitude to maths have a crucial impact on a child’s schooling and their ability to use numbers in everyday life as they grow. 

Top Tips for Parents...
  • Be positive about maths. Try not to say things like “I can’t do maths” or “I hated maths at school” – your child may start to think like that themselves
  • Point out the maths in everyday life. Include your child in activities involving numbers and measuring, such as shopping, cooking and travelling
  • Praise your child for effort rather than for being “clever”. This shows them that by working hard they can always improve
  •  building your own confidence helps when supporting your child with maths
