As a charity, our work almost entirely takes place in schools, but we know that parents, carers and siblings can make a huge difference and are often keen to help!
Once children have been selected for a programme, we work with families through:
- Establishing regular contact – tutors update families about lessons and answer questions that parents or carers may have.
- Inviting parents and carers to come and observe lessons or join in with workshops.
- Organising celebration assemblies in schools for families once their child has completed one of our programmes.
From time to time, we also run family events and on 28th November 2023 we will be hosting a live online Making Maths Fun session for parents and carers. Ideal for anyone who looks after children in Years 2-4 (but also useful for older children who lack confidence in Maths), we’ll be showing you how to make maths part of everyday conversations, giving you five printable screen free games and explaining how to help your child think ‘mathematically’.
Tickets are £5-£15 and can be via booked Eventbrite here.
