An update on the Count on Us Primary Maths Challenge for 2023/24.
The Mayor’s Fund for London is no longer running the Count on Us Maths Challenge for primary schools.
We are incredibly proud of what has been achieved through the Challenge over the last nine years, and this has been a difficult decision to make. It’s a challenging time across the capital and, at the Mayor’s Fund for London, we will focus our resources and activities to ensure we are making the biggest impact on the lives of young Londoners from low-income backgrounds and diverse communities.
Unfortunately, that means that it’s not possible to maintain the Count on Us Primary Maths Challenge at this time. We know that good numeracy drives social mobility, and we remain committed to supporting young people to enjoy maths and feel confident in the subject.
If you’re a teacher that took part in the 2022/23 tournament, you may have used our online, downloadable resources on our website. You’ll still be able to access these until the end of 2023. If you’d like to use them in your classes and maths clubs, you can access the Resource Area using the button below and the password you’ll have used previously.
With the support of the Jack Petchey Foundation we’re able to continue the Secondary Count on Us Maths Challenge in 2023/24, and to develop new activities with employers to support young people’s understanding of the role of maths in the workplace and careers.
Most of all we wish to say a huge thank you to our participating schools for the time, effort and teamwork that has gone into making Count on Us such a joy to be a part of. We hope to be able to work with you again and look forward to staying in touch as we continue to refresh our offer for young Londoners.
