Football Club Maths
This STEM funded project will focus on the development of Numeracy skills among a group of Black Caribbean and Black African boys from Years 7-10, but will also include other students that are also underachieving in Maths. St Bernard’s Catholic school has been focussing on this ethnic group for the past 2 years and studies have shown that the boys under scrutiny do not achieve their fullest potential.

The aim of this project is to address this shortfall, by close tracking of pupils through an already established progress check system, early intervention and by placing pupils on a personalised learning programme. Involve attending a series of 3 workshops at Watford Football Club. Each student will take part in a range of Numeracy activities based in and around the day to day running of a Premiership club. The students will engage with the everyday context of the Mathematics they are being asked to use. The task will be designed to specifically engage demotivated boys by involving lots of ICT. The workshops will also be visited by some of Watford’s high profile black players to help enthuse and inspire the boys to further success. The project will have an incentive scheme to encourage the students to stick with the programme; tickets to a Watford home game as arranged through the club at preferential rates.
