Take part and make maths count

Friday 3 February 2017

Celebrate maths and raise money for the NSPCC by taking part in Number Day, our national fundraising event for schools.

Whether you dedicate a day or an hour to being a maths maverick, every pound you raise counts towards our fight for every childhood.

Plan your Number Day

We'll provide schools who register with everything they need to make their Number Day a success. Activities and resources can be used in class or by the whole school. You'll get:

  • fundraising tips and ideas to help pupils and teachers raise money
  • maths activities for children of all ages
  • printed posters to promote your event
  • teacher resources to help you inspire and inform the whole school.

Please note: All resources will be available to download in October. We won't be sending out schools packs this year but we'll email you when our online resources are ready.

"NSPCC’s Number Day is a fantastic opportunity for our pupils to make a difference in other children’s lives through numeracy. It helps make our maths fun, relevant and meaningful."

We're counting on your support

"I don’t know where I would be now without Childline. Last year I felt as though I was in a dark tunnel but you have helped me to see the light at the end of it."
Young person who contacted Childline

With the help of teachers, parents and children in schools across the UK, we can continue our work to fight for every childhood. The money you raise will support Childline and our many other services.
