What is Number Day?

Andy is getting involved with Number Day – are you?

Number Day is a maths-inspired fundraising day organised and run by the NSPCC. Intended to help promote mathematics whilst at the same time raising money for a worthwhile children’s charity, it’s a great opportunity to help raise the profile of numeracy in your school!

Plan your Number Day

You’ll be provided with everything you need to make your Number Day a success. Activities and resources will be provided by the NSPCC which can be used in class or by the whole school.

You’ll get:
  • digital resources you can use in class
  • fundraising tips and ideas to help pupils and teachers raise money
  • maths activities for children of all ages
  • printed posters to promote your event
  • access to teacher resources to keep children safe from harm, supporting your school’s safeguarding

Why your support counts

The NSPCC work hard to protect every child from abuse. They do this via a broad range of initiatives and resources, and they rely on funding from amazing people across the country, who like you, believe that every childhood is worth fighting for. By getting your pupils involved in fundraising, you’re helping to keep children safe from abuse and joining the NSPCC’s fight for every childhood.

How to get involved

You can download sponsor forms or ask your pupils to bring in a donation to take part in the activities.

Examples of activities and FREE resources

Dress up for digits – Children in fancy dress

Simply ask your pupils and staff to wear an item of clothing with a number on it and bring in a suggested donation of £2.


This can be a sports shirt or cap, even a onesie. Or why not get more creative as a dice or calculator!


It’s a great opportunity to get your local press involved and to come along and take a photo of the whole school.

Downloadable activities and worksheets

There are loads of activities and resources on the NSPCC website,   these can all be found on this page. Some examples are:


KS1 – Musical Numbers

KS2 – Battle of the Robots

KS3 – Staying safe quiz

KS4 – How to be a Mathionaire Interactive Presentation/Game





There are also ideas from teachers who have joined in with number day before as well as suggestions for assemblies – so why not take a look and get involved? Even if it’s too late to organise a big event, you can still use these resources throughout the year to enhance your maths lessons and support the welfare of the children in your care.
