Count Me In Project


East Dunbartonshire Council has a new team delivering a programme called Count Me In, focussing on developing and promoting numeracy learning opportunities for local adults. It is made up of four experienced primary school teachers from across the Council area and aims to help adults who want to:

  • support their child with their numeracy development
  • learn how schools now teach numeracy 
  • increase their confidence with numbers
  • further develop their maths skills for learning, life and work.

The Count Me In team will be running a series of FREE maths classes for parents to increase their confidence and skills in helping their children with numeracy. Learning will be based on the Primary maths curriculum from P1 through to P7/early secondary and will equip parents with effective tools and strategies they can use to support various aspects of their child’s numeracy development.

Courses start from Tues 24th October and will run for 6 Weeks at the same time each week (see dates & times below).

Graham BowmanGraham Bowman

"Having been teaching in East Dunbartonshire for over 14 years, I love helping children develop a positive attitude to numbers and maths through fun and exciting learning experiences. I’m really excited to be a part of the Count Me In team and look forward to providing these same opportunities to adults as well!"

Amanda Hudson

"Hi, my name is Amanda Hudson. I have been a teacher for 22 years and I am enthusiastic about Amanda Hudsonmaking maths fun. During lockdown I enjoyed connecting with families to help support their child with maths by providing videos demonstrating how we teach maths in school today. I am a mum of two and I totally understand that the first step in reconnecting with learning can seem daunting. I would like to reassure anyone that many adults I have worked with find today's methods can make numbers make more sense! I am excited to be working with adults as part of the Count Me In team to help build confidence with numbers in a relaxed environment. Please do not be afraid to ask me any questions about how I can help you."

Karen LewisKaren Lewis

"Hi, my name is Karen and I have been teaching in East Dunbartonshire for the past 14 years. I am passionate about making learning fun and developing a growth mindset, especially around maths. Having attended a maths conference as part of my Professional Learning, I am confident that we can change the maths mindset of many adults who feel they simply “can’t do maths”. I am excited about this new project and how it could help shape future prospects for the adults and families in our community."
