The structure of support for maths education in England has changed.
Over thirty-five Maths Hubs have now been established across England, each led by an outstanding school, college or pair of institutions, with a record of excellent achievement in mathematics, but each also in partnership with neighbouring schools and colleges, universities, and other organisations, maths experts and employers.
Loreto Teaching School Alliance is working with Ashton on Mersey Teaching School in this important work through the Turing North West 2 Maths Hub. The work of this Maths Hub now offers support to the geographical areas of Trafford, Salford, Tameside, Warrington, Bolton and High Peak.
This initiative builds on the excellent practice and achievement that already exists widely - but not universally - across the school and college system in relation to Maths teaching. It is funded by the DfE and co-ordinated by the NCETM. The Maths Hubs provides strategic local maths leadership to ensure all schools receive the tailored maths education support they need. It is an effective way of harnessing all of the maths teaching expertise within our area and the UK in order to spread excellent practice even more widely, for the benefit of all pupils and students.
