Numeracy

Numeracy
There are individual programmes and curriculum activities devised at a level and pace appropriate to the individual and made relevant, interesting and have purpose.

Functional Numeracy
At The Collett School, we place a strong focus on supporting pupils to use and apply their numeracy skills as an important and functional part of their daily routines, for example during shopping trips or when following a recipe whilst cooking. Functional Numeracy is applied across the curriculum in order to ensure pupils can make connections between areas of study and, within our community as relevant and helpful knowledge/skill sets.

The National Curriculum disadvantages our pupils with Special Educational Needs who have Cognitive Learning Disabilities as they are not working at the age-determined level. Our CAPPS however, takes into account the linear progression required and ensures rigour and age-appropriate requirements, but in a system that that doesn't focus on the failure to achieve standards, but does reward progression.
