Every Child Counts has 4 ‘families’ of mathematics intervention programmes, each meeting the needs of targeted groups of pupils. All come with extensive, attractive ready–to–use resources, written guidance manuals and the highest quality face-to-face training.
Teachers and teaching assistants can start teaching straight after their first training day and then the training runs parallel with their teaching in their training term.

Talk 4 Number Teaching assistant-led programme for groups of 4 pupils who need support to learn the vocabulary of number and calculation and to talk confidently about their mathematics.
Why are they needed?
25% of pupils in English primary schools did not achieve the expected standard in mathematics at the end of Key Stages 1 and 2 in 2017. That’s an average of 9 pupils in every year group in every school who have fallen behind and could be helped by an Every Child Counts programme.
The Education Endowment Foundation’s Improving Mathematics in Key Stages 2 and 3 report recommends that schools should ‘use structured interventions to provide additional support’ when pupils need to catch up. ECC interventions meet all of the report’s criteria for an effective intervention.
