Friday 5 February 2016

Number Day logo

NSPCC Number Day is a fun, nationwide maths fundraising event for children and young people of all ages that helps raise money to support the NSPCC.

We believe that every child deserves a safe and happy childhood. By taking part in Number Day, the money you raise will help us protect children in danger and prevent abuse from shaping a child's future.

We're also delighted to have support from Rachel Riley:

"Number Day is a great way to get children engaged with maths, and on top of that, they’ll be raising money for the NSPCC. Teachers have a huge part to play in inspiring the next generation of mathematicians so I hope that on 5 February, children in schools across the UK will be putting on their thinking caps and having fun with numbers. Let the countdown to Number Day begin!"

Feedback from schools

"I chose to take part in NSPCC Number Day because it is such a worthwhile cause, especially as it's for children. The resources were excellent and ready-made. It was great to have the profile of maths raised for the day and the whole school involved in inter-school competitions whilst raising money for charity."
