Maths in our school!
St. Ambrose is now a ‘Liverpool Counts’ school as we recently achieved the silver award. This means that as a school, we are committed to raising the profile of Maths.
As a school, we encourage our children to have:
- A ‘ can do’ attitude to Maths;
- To always try their best and never give up;
- To understand how important Maths is in our every day lives;
- To use Maths skills in other areas of the curriculum.
Above all, we are dedicated to building our children’s knowledge, understanding and enthusiasm for Maths, not only in the classroom but in their every day lives…because
