Lorna Manning: Number & Measure is an important exam for us as a PRU. Not only does it give students an improved skills set; it is motivating and builds confidence. A pass lets students know that they can do maths, so it also builds resilience. Students with lower reading ages can access the questions so when they get that pass they know that they can do maths. They are more willing to keep working for their GCSE. This is often the first taste of success our students have.
