About Us

Count On Us provide educational support in a variety of ways. We provide support and training in maths for teaching staff from Early Level to 4th Level.

Our training events have been described as ‘inspirational’ and ‘the best CLPL I have ever been to.’

We have designed a learning aid, called the ‘Numeracy BluePrints,’. The ‘Numeracy BluePrints‘ support conceptual understanding in maths and numeracy. They also build on and link the principles of concrete, pictorial and abstract learning processes.

Furthermore, we also concentrate and stress on the true principles about learning. Focusing on mindset and ensuring learners get the correct messages. Showing that learning requires effort, practice and time, hence our motto “practice makes better.”

Excellent CPD. Very enlightening and engaging. The time flew by! Great visuals and I can see that the Numeracy Blueprints would be great to use with pupils. Christopher gave us lots of strategies to use with the pupils which I think would really help their knowledge and understanding of maths. It has certainly added to my strategy tool kit! Thank you!

Josephine Sanderson, St. Margaret’s Primary School

This session was excellent. The number process strategies are straightforward to teach. I like how visual the strategies are and think this will help pupils to better understand the process of what they are doing and therefore explain their thinking.

Erin, Blackwood Primary School

I really enjoyed this session and the way Christopher brought this to life over a zoom, it was very informative and enjoyable. Thank you I will take these approaches into the classroom when we are back with the children.

Lauren Kendrick, Giffnock Primary School

An in-depth and interesting course, exploring different strategies to explore Number and Number Processes. Chris was clear and explained things very clearly. I cannotwait to get back into school to share these strategies with my colleagues and pupils!

Susan Liveston, Hyndland Primary School

Think the bar modelling strategy for division would be a lightbulb moment for many in my maths groups. Looking forward to trying it out when schools reopen. Thank you! I really enjoyed this online course. Lots to think about and take forward.
