How Number Club works

The mission of Number Club is to improve numeracy in primary school children, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds, through a combination of game-based learning and volunteer tutors.

Clubs run weekly afterschool. Pupils play a Maths app on a tablet and then have one to one support with a volunteer tutor, addressing gaps in knowledge which are digitally identified.

To be eligible a child must be identified by their teacher as struggling with maths. Priority is given to those facing some kind of disadvantage. 90% of our attendees are recipients of free school meals or pupil premium.

Progress for every student – and each club – is recorded digitally.
