Mathematics: Primary Education

Volume 496: debated on Thursday 16 July 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how much his Department spent on the National Strategies advertisements, “Ensuring progression in primary mathematics”, in June and July 2009; and if he will make a statement. (286562)

The cost was £3,358. The guidance identified in the advert is designed to help teachers understand key learning that children need to secure to attain level 4 in mathematics. Alerting teachers to valuable free resources in this manner has generated strong demand at relatively little cost and represents value for money.
