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:

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:
