Maths Hub - Cambridge

Cambridge Maths Hub is one of a network of 40 Maths Hubs in England, each led by a local school or college. 

 

Most schools in Cambridgeshire are now working with the Maths Hub (approx 95%) and it is a privilege to work together to improve maths outcomes for pupils. The Maths Hub's model for professional development is around a Work Group in which teachers learn together, sharing good practice, led by a member of their team. Where possible, teachers are encouraged to visit other schools and see the teaching and learning of maths in a different environment.

There are a range of Professional Development opportunities available from Early Years to A Level, including for ECTs from primary and secondary schools. There is also a subject knowledge Work Group for secondary non-specialists teaching some maths. It has started but teachers/TAs are welcome to join session 2. It is all DfE funded and therefore free to schools.

EYFS & Primary Programmes

Mastering Number Embedding the Impact: For schools continuing to use Mastering Number - EYFS & KS1

This project aims to secure firm foundations in the development of good number sense for all children from Reception through to Year 1 and Year 2. The aim over time is that children will leave KS1 with fluency in calculation and a confidence and flexibility with number. Attention will be given to key knowledge and understanding needed in Reception classes, and progression through KS1 to support success in the future.

Specialist Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics - Primary Teaching Assistants

This programme is designed for primary teaching assistants who are supporting maths, and who like to develop their specialist knowledge for teaching maths. This may be particularly relevant for new TAs or TAs that have not received maths-specific training. This project is designed to improve the subject knowledge and pedagogical knowledge for all practitioners supporting the learning of primary maths.

Mastering Number - Embedding the Impact

This programme focuses on the key knowledge and understanding needed in Reception classes, and progression through KS1. Participating schools will receive central training (online and face-to-face) and a wealth of pupil-facing resources.

Specialist Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics - Primary Early Career Teachers - Phase A and Phase B

Who can take part?

Phase A Communities in this project are for those identified as Early Career Teachers – teachers in their first or second year of teaching. Phase B Communities are for those in the early part of their careers. They will have engaged with Phase A before engaging with this phase.

What is involved?

Two maths-specific subject knowledge projects are available to support primary Early Career Teachers (ECTs) – one is for ECTs who have not yet participated in this project and one is for those who participated in 2022/23. Both projects offer high-quality subject knowledge and pedagogy maths support for ECTs, recognising the requirements of the ECF.

This programme strikes a balance between developing teachers’ maths subject knowledge and pedagogical content knowledge, alongside classroom practice to support the learning of maths. Participants will attend the equivalent of up to four days of sessions, focusing between sessions on the use of tasks in the classroom.

SKTM Secondary Non-Specialist Teachers: Develop Mathematical Subject Knowledge and Understand the Pedagogy that underpins the teaching of it

This project is designed to support non-specialist teachers teaching maths in a secondary school in developing specialist knowledge for teaching mathematics, thus enabling them to understand, teach and support students in maths in the classroom.

There are significant numbers of people teaching maths in secondary schools without specialist initial teacher training. This programme supports non-specialist teachers in developing the specialist knowledge (the blend of subject knowledge and pedagogical knowledge) for teaching maths.

This programme will take place over seven full days.
