Liverpool Counts Quality Mark
In June 2016, St. Patrick’s first achieved Gold Award status as part of the Liverpool Counts Maths Quality Mark pilot. This is a prestigious award that evidences the school’s outstanding approach to instilling a Numeracy for Life philosophy throughout the school, nurturing positive attitudes to maths and enabling children to see maths as a life skill that we need for everyday life and future careers. St. Patrick’s was commended for embedding problem solving and reasoning effectively in its maths provision, with exciting real life problems and links to real life events bringing maths to life and placing learning in a meaningful context. The school received further praise for successfully engaging parents and the local community in its Numeracy for Life message, and for promoting financial literacy from an early age, including through making successful links with financial and business organisations.
In 2019, we worked towards retaining our Gold Award status in the Liverpool Counts Quality Mark and we are delighted to announce that we have been re-accredited as a Gold Award standard school again in July 2019. #NumeracyForLife
