A Maths Hub Collaborative
Archimedes NE Maths Hub working in Collaboration with Great North, Yorkshire Ridings & Central Maths Hubs
Speakers include: Jane Jones HMI and Debbie Morgan NCETM Director for Primary
There is already an established network across the country of SLEs, PD leads, CPD Standard holders, MaST, LA advisors, maths hub workgroup leaders, other lead professionals and the soon to be trained Primary Mastery Specialists. This key group of “Local Leaders of Maths Education LLME” are all working with schools in various contexts and many (though not all) will no doubt be connecting with their local maths hub. Consequently, there is a clear need to provide ongoing support for this important group of system leaders and further develop ways of working together.
The overarching aim of the day is to support Local Leaders of Mathematics Education through:
- providing a forum for colleagues to meet and network with other Local Leaders of Mathematics;
- helping LLMEs to assess and develop further understanding of the changing landscape of mathematics education;
- exploring the mathematics-specific needs of teachers locally and nationally;
- identifying current provision and any gaps there might be in that provision, both now and likely to occur as a result of planned changes;
- developing recommendations for future provision and exploring ways of achieving these.
In addition there will be opportunities to:
- identify and explore some of the needs of Local leaders of Mathematics Education;
- learn about relevant national and local developments in mathematics education;
- hear about the work of other Local Leaders of Maths Education though workshop sessions.
Please note that this event is specifically for Local Leaders of Mathematics Education i.e. colleagues that are working to support mathematics education beyond their immediate setting.

Two workshop choices allowed eg: workshop A & F
We will personally email you to choose.
Level 3 Mathematics
Phil Moxon Further Mathematics FMSP and Will Rigby (CMSP)
A full introduction to the qualification and explores the content of the Core Maths specifications. Emphasis will be placed upon the way in which Core Maths provides students who have achieved a C (or 4) at GCSE with a viable progression route for the problem solving and quantitative demands of other subjects at KS4 and KS5.
Primary Mathematics Mixed Age Planning
Julie Pattison North Yorkshire LA Maths Adviser
How do you make the primary mathematics curriculum work when you teach an entire key stage in one class? This workshop will share the rationale and purpose of the mixed age plans, produced as part of this project (and some of the surprising outcomes) as well as provide resources and activities that clusters of small schools can use to evaluate the effectiveness of their own approach to mixed age planning.
Maximising the impact of Lesson study
Graham Sanderson Assistant Leader in Mathematics at Oxclose Community Academy, and Assistant Maths Hub Lead with the Great North Maths Hub.
What lesson study is and how you can maximise its impact with in school. Graeme will share his experiences of using lesson study as an effective tool, most recently as part of a national collaborative project, Mathematical Reasoning at KS3.
Graeme Sanderson has over 20 years teaching experience, and currently works as Assistant Leader in Mathematics at Oxclose Community Academy, and Assistant Maths Hub Lead with the Great North Maths Hub.
Leading a department
Karen has 30 years’ experience of teaching mathematics, including 20 years as head of department in a large Newcastle secondary school. She currently works as a School Improvement Adviser for Secondary Mathematics for North Tyneside Council, and is Maths Lead for the Great North Maths Hub.
This workshop, led by Karen Knox, focuses on the skills and knowledge required to be a confident and effective subject and department leader. The session will explore: * Setting a vision for a department * Running, monitoring and evaluating an effective department, managing change and addressing challenges.
Problem solving workshop
Simon Mazumder NW1 Maths Hub Lead. CML and SLE
Mathematical Problem Solving using heuristics to change the culture of teaching and learning in the maths classroom. A range of strategies will be illustrated to colleagues in these techniques.
Colin Prestwich Executive Head of Maths at Harrogate Grammar School and Maths Hub Lead for Yorkshire Ridings
So what is reasoning and why do we find it hard to get our students to explain their work and thoughts? What are the different levels of reasoning and how do we promote students to move from one level to the next one? The workshop will address these questions.
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
The A1 (M) is less than 10 minutes from the hotel and Darlington railway station on the East Coast mainline is also close by with links to London’s Kings Cross St Pancras just 2 ½ hrs away. These excellent transport links, along with Free WiFi throughout the hotel and free parking.
