We are delighted to be supporting the first ever Maths Week London taking place from 10 – 14 June 2019.
Maths Week London aims to raise the profile of maths in the London community, improve children’s attitude towards maths and promote the value of maths as an essential skill.
To support and encourage schools to run their own activities and events, the Mayor’s Fund for London is running a small grants scheme on behalf of Maths Week London for London-based schools to access.
Each school has the opportunity to bid for up to £250.
Kim Chaplain, Director of Charitable Portfolio at the Mayor’s Fund for London, said: “Current attitudes that we have as a society towards maths is encouraging children to give up on the subject too early. The impact this has on later life can have detrimental effects. Therefore, there needs to be more support for the way maths is taught and learnt, in order to strengthen engagement, increase attainment and improve the life chances of all children. The Mayor’s Fund for London is delighted to be partnering with Maths Week London to raise awareness throughout London, and nationally, to change these attitudes and encourage more children to enjoy maths.”
