Pupils make maths count
Pupils at Belford First School raised Â£83 for charity when they dressed up on a number theme and completed maths tasks for Number Day 2018.
The initiative, which took place earlier this month, is organised by the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC).
The school was given digital resources to use in class, fund-raising tips and ideas to help pupils and teachers raise money, maths activities for children of all ages and access to teacher resources to keep children safe from harm, supporting the school’s safeguarding efforts.
Writing in the most recent school newsletter, head teacher Janet Robinson states: ‘For the last two years our end-of-year data in Early Years, Year 1 and Year 2 has exceeded national expectations. Last year, Belford First School was in the top 10 per cent of schools across the country for writing and maths.
‘We are very proud of the progress we have made and look forward to Ofsted returning later this term where I’m sure they will be impressed by our achievements.’
