This is the introductory statement from Curriculum for Excellence Numeracy.

My learning in mathematics enables me to:

  • develop a secure understanding of the concepts, principles and processes of mathematics and apply these in different contexts, including the world of work
  • engage with more abstract mathematical concepts and develop important new kinds of thinking
  • understanding the application of mathematics, its impact on our society past and present, and its potential for the future
  • develop essential numeracy skills which will allow me to participate fully in society
  • establish firm foundations for further specialist learning
  • understanding that successful independent living requires financial awareness, effective money management, using schedules and other related skills
  • interpret numerical information appropriately and use it to draw conclusions, assess risk, and make reasoned evaluations and informed decisions
  • apply skills and understanding creatively and logically to solve problems, within a variety of contexts
  • appreciate how the imaginative and effective use of technologies can enhance the development of skills and concepts.


We have the use of Active Maths  for early to second level (nursery to p7 inclusive). This allows our pupils to have access to written, practical and interactive numeracy activities. In addition we use Education City, ActivExpression and a range of other resources to boost childrens learning.
