Who is Numicon for?
Numicon is a quality first teaching approach designed to give children the understanding of number ideas and number relationships that is essential for success in maths. We use a series of structured patterns - Numicon shapes - to represent numbers, as part of a progressive teaching programme.
There are over 6,000 schools in UK already using Numicon for teaching numeracy. As a research based programme Numicon is respected by many educators and the independent evidence base is growing.

As well as providing information and support for schools, we also have information for Local Authorities and Independent Consultants on how you can get involved in this truly inspirational approach to teaching maths.
Our core resources cover National Curriculum Level 1- 3 and our SEN resource, Closing the Gap is suitable for children working within the P-Levels.
