Maths in your hands

Numicon is the market-leading primary school maths programme that offers teachers a wealth of resources that can be used across EYFS, KS1, KS2, and bridging the gap to KS3.

Based on a concrete-pictorial-abstract approach, Numicon encourages children to explore maths using structured imagery and apparatus in order to understand and explain mathematical concepts. Make the most of manipulatives or mastery by using Numicon resources.


  • Can be used flexibly alongside your existing resources, or as a complete maths programme
  • Includes a range of professional development options to suit the needs of your school and staff
  • Helps you to assess a child’s understanding and progress by watching and listening to what they do and say
  • Has been proven to have had a positive impact on children’s enjoyment as well as giving them the confidence to demonstrate how and why they arrived at their answer
