Curriculum

Numeracy

In Park Lane School we ensure that numeracy is taught both as an academic subject and as a life skill. We understand the importance of mathematics and numeracy, how it can underpin so many aspects of our daily lives and is essential for progress in other areas of learning and experience.

In order to encourage our pupils to achieve in numeracy, we have looked at both the new curriculum and Numeracy Framework and developed a tailor-made curriculum for Park Lane which focuses on the individual needs, abilities and potential of all our students.
