We developed Let’s Count! following research with primary school teachers across England & Wales.
The education programme aims to drive awareness and excitement about the census, demonstrating the importance of the data it provides on a personal, local and national level.
It does this with inspirational resources for teachers and children, driving messages beyond the classrooms.
During the pilot activity in 2019, over 90% of teachers and parents said that the Let’s Count activity made a positive educational impact at their school and 93% of parents said their child enjoyed taking part.
After this successful pilot, we are now working on the roll out to schools across England and Wales to support Census 2021.
