Dear Year 5 Parents and Carers

We are delighted to be involved with a project around improving maths teaching for children. Year 5 from our school and Year 5 children from other schools in the northwest are taking part. As such researchers from Liverpool John Moores University would like to collect information about how children learn in maths and what the children’s feelings are towards maths and the teaching approaches taken in the different schools.

As with any research project all the information collected is anonymous and if you don’t want your child to participate with the research aspect you can request this. I have attached an information sheet from the university for you to read.

If you are a parent/carer of a child in Year 5 and would like your child not to be involved in the research aspect of the project, can you please print out and return the attached opt-out form. If you are struggling to print the form out please call in at the school office where we can give you a copy to sign.

Thank you for your consideration and support.
