As part of the maths hubs' vision is;
- "A resolute focus on pupil's maths outcomes" and "Determined support for all schools & colleges to improve"
This educator led initiative is based on a principle of "Teachers doing good work together to make a difference to pupils" with a longer term vision to strategically combine the efforts of the Mathematics community in adapting best practice locally and from across the world for the benefit of our children.
