London Thames Maths Hub led by the Harris Federation
There are 35 Maths Hubs in total, the scheme is being backed with funding from the Department for Education in order to help children, and teenagers in UK schools match the standards of maths achieved in top-performing East Asian countries.
We have begun working with schools across London with a clear and common purpose of developing a world class maths education. This includes collaboration with new teachers, established teachers and subject leaders, as well as anyone wanting to focus on research and development, and new forms of pupil enrichment in maths.
Jacquelyn Lomas, London Thames Maths Hub Senior Lead, says:
“This project is close to our hearts because our experience is that effective collaboration is key to supporting improvements in education."
“Being a Maths Hub means we can establish a London-wide network for sharing strong teaching and learning practices, supporting better training for teachers in both pedagogy and subject knowledge in these times of rapid, but exciting curriculum reform."
“We are keen to welcome more teachers from different schools, phases, universities and maths associations to take part in the continuing development and design of the curriculum, assessment, and training program. Working collaboratively, we will develop resources that will be made available via our website, as we invite more schools to take part in this exciting opportunity. We will continue to post information about the developments of this programme and our other ongoing projects to allow more schools a chance to engage."
The geographical area we cover is Croydon, Southwark, Bromley, Lambeth, Haringey and Enfield.
We are now working with the various areas listed to create a strong network of teachers and schools to support and improve the learning of mathematics. We would also like to hear from you – the members of the maths education community in our area. So, if you would like to join us in our work, contribute ideas, receive support, or just find out what’s happening, please do get in touch for more information or visit our website.
