In the RM Education annual survey, conducted in July 2015, it was revealed that 81% of SLT in Secondary Schools and 80% of SLT in Primary Schools would be prioritising resource spending over the next 12 months on numeracy.
In response to Nicky Morgan’s announcement of her ‘war on illiteracy and innumeracy’ it is unsurprising that SLT have responded with this heightened focus on raising attainment in numeracy.
There are a range of applications available within RM Unify which support numeracy for a range of ages and abilities, all easily accessible on any device, from anywhere and at anytime with just one username and password.
