Every Child Counts

Every Child Counts Training School

Staplehurst School is an Every Child Counts Training School, providing specialist training and support for teachers and teaching assistants across Kent, Medway, Bexley and East Sussex, enabling them to raise pupil attainment in mathematics.

Numbers Count is an intensive intervention available for our pupils from Year 1 to Year 6 who really struggle with mathematics, to help them get back on track and catch up with their peers. Our Teacher Leader, Miss Carr works with pupils individually or in twos or threes on a programme tailored to meet the needs of each child, improving their skills and attitudes towards mathematics. The intervention is highly effective, with pupils nationally making average gains of 16 months over approximately 40 lessons. The wider impact of the programme is that teachers across the school are also helped to raise standards.

For pupils from Year 2 onwards who need a helping hand with mathematics, a ‘lighter touch’ intervention called 1st Class @ Number is delivered by trained teaching assistants. Small groups of children are given between 24 – 30 lessons designed to improve their numeracy, communication skills and mathematical thinking. 1st Class @ Number is an innovative intervention, with pupils nationally making average gains of 10 months. Teaching assistants use the skills they have learnt in 1st Class @ Number to help other children in class lessons across the school.
