About Project

Our trained volunteers support children in state primary schools who are struggling with maths. Our focus is children in Years 2 and 3.

An in-school volunteer will run one-to-one sessions with each child for 20 to 30 minutes, once or twice weekly for a full school year. Sessions take place in school but outside the classroom, during the normal school day.

All our volunteers are trained in the early years maths syllabus and in creative ways to engage young children with maths games and exercises. We have current and former teachers acting as mentors who deliver this training and give on-going support to our volunteers.

We provide training in safeguarding and we liaise with the school on DBS background checks.

Number Sense was founded in 2018 and is free to our partner schools during the second year of our pilot (2019-20). After that, as we expand across London and nationwide, we will charge a small fee per child each year.

If you are interested in becoming a Number Sense school, please have a look at our FAQs below, and then contact us, and we can discuss or send you more information as appropriate.
