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.
  
The South Yorkshire Maths Hub (SYMH) aims to work with all schools in the region and encourages not just Maths leaders but all teachers of Maths to engage with the opportunities that are made available.
