Barking students ranked number one on NSPCC Number Day 2020
Eastbury Community School in Barking recently celebrated NSPCC Number Day for the first time.
The event saw pupils don fancy dress and get involved with lots of fun maths- based games.
Number Day is a maths-inspired fundraising day organised by the children’s charity, the NSPCC. It aims to get children inspired by maths, whilst raising money for worthy causes. In total, pupils managed to raise a massive £300.
Councillor Evelyn Carpenter, Cabinet Member for Educational Attainment and School Improvement, said: “It’s fantastic to see students embrace the NSPCC’s Number Day, a great chance for them to dress up, learn, and raise money for a noble cause.
“It’s so important that, even from early years, we build a good foundation of maths knowledge in our young people. I’m glad to see Eastbury Community School doing just that.”
Nine out of 10 Barking and Dagenham schools are rated good to outstanding by Ofsted.
