These case studies are taken from schools who were part of the Count on Us Parental Engagement project. These schools had particular successes in different areas of parental engagement. The maths champion in each school has agree to include their contact details for any school to contact them for more information.
1. Rockley Junior School
“We were particularly happy to see families who we had yet to engage. As well as helping parents to support their children’s learning, session 3 provided information for adults on how to develop their own maths knowledge, e.g. for everyday situations, work, etc. including information about local courses as well as online resources.”
Rockley Junior school took part in the Mayor’s Fund for London’s development grant scheme. read this case study to find out how it went.

Downshall is a large primary school with over 600 pupils on roll. Almost all pupils are from minority ethnic groups and most speak English as a second language. The school had felt it had an ‘open door’ policy but OFSTED had reported that the school was not doing enough to engage parents.
