National Numeracy Day is this Wednesday

On Wednesday 18 May, National Numeracy Day is celebrating its fifth birthday as the UK’s only day dedicated to everyday maths.

A host of stars including TV’s Bobby Seagull, Martin Lewis, Rachel Riley and Strictly’s Katya Jones are among those helping charity National Numeracy to boost the nation’s number confidence.

Alongside the charity, we understand the importance of our staff having confidence in numeracy, after all, getting on with numbers is a crucial everyday skill.

From snapping up a bargain at the shops, to using numbers at work or supporting children and young people with their homework and learning, National Numeracy Day is all about the importance of numbers in everyday life for both adults and children.
