About Let’s Count


  • New for 2022 are five fabulous census education resources, which you can use in the build-up to the Census 2021 population announcement in early summer 2022.
  • All resources cover important areas of the English and Welsh curriculum.
  • Let’s Count! has achieved accreditation from Mathematics in Education and Industry (MEI), the National Association for the Teaching of English (NATE) and the Geographical Association.
  • Still available from 2021 are 14 cross-curricular resources for you to choose from. You can also use video lessons from MEI and Professor David Olusoga for remote learning.
  • We’ve designed these flexible and time-saving resources to support your school through the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, whether teaching in the classroom or at home. They can help you to re-engage children and families in learning and celebrate their local community.
  • This easy-to-use education programme can help improve maths and writing skills, using Census 2021, a significant real-life event, as a stimulus.
  • The resources even offer professional development training for your teachers, with an exclusive session about progression in statistics across the primary years.
  • Get full access to this Let’s Count! website, including past census data on your local area and a free chart-generation tool. This allows you to create colourful pie charts and bar charts.
  • Use editable PowerPoint slides, supporting each lesson plan, allowing you to tailor lessons for your class.
  • Reward children with digital certificates for taking part.
  • Use the Counter Cat characters to help make learning fun.
