White Rose Maths Hub

 

 

Welcome to the White Rose Maths Hub 

 

We are one of 35 Government funded Maths Hub. The hubs were created to address some of the key issues in maths, and provide localised support and opportunities for the sharing of good practice. 

As a hub, our designated areas cover Bradford, Calderdale Kirklees and Leeds. Whilst we welcome queries and questions from all schools, we do encourage you to check out if the support you are looking for is available from your local designated hub.

We are now in our third year, and thanks to your support, we have enjoyed a phenomenal second year. Our third year is of course set to be even busier. Whilst this brochure highlights just some of the support available, we encourage all schools to get in touch and get involved.

 

Some of the highlights from our 2015 – 16 work includes:

 

  • Preparing for an even busier 2016-17 with the appointment of a number of key new roles including our Maths Consultants – visit our website for the latest information.
  • Celebrating 15,000 downloads on our free schemes of learning and assessments.
  • Training over 700 delegates at our open courses.
  • Upskilling over 1500 delegates at our INSET training for schools.
  • Continuing to provide fun and free inspiring opportunities including our mini-celebration of maths events, and school showcases.

  

Our priorities and passions

 

As we approach our third birthday, our support continues to grow and expand. Our priority however remains the same: to ensure everyone has a love and passion for maths. We believe that no one is ‘good’ or ‘bad’ at maths. Like speaking, we are all born with an innate ability to enjoy and succeed in maths.

 

As a hub, we are committed to ensuring all of our work focusses on a teaching for mastery approach. Children who master the basic concepts at a young age are able to grow into skilled mathematicians. As part of this a great deal of our work supports helping teachers to be confident and knowledgeable in their own practice.

 

Our continued priorities for 2016-17 include:

 

  • Building upon our programme of teaching for mastery support with conferences, training and free schemes of work to ensure staff are skilled and able to use this powerful approach.
  • Expanding our range of specialist training, so that staff have the knowledge and tools to introduce and teach crucial topics effectively.
  • Boosting maths confidence in teachers – whether they need help with introductory topics or more bespoke specialist training for teaching maths at post-16, our accessible training will help.
  • Celebrating how maths is fun! We will continue to help all celebrate the joy of maths, through a range of engaging, fun and high-profile opportunities for children and adults alike.
