Maths Subject Leader Network

Our Maths network provides a great opportunity for subject leaders to come together to hear the latest news and updates in the world of Primary Maths; enhance their leadership skills; explore aspects of pedagogy and network with colleagues. We work closely with a range of local and national mathematical organisations, including the Maths Hubs and NCETM, to share expertise and explore the latest practice.

What to expect across the year…

We meet termly in a range of locations or online and always start with a focus on the national updates from the DfE, Ofsted, various Maths associations and the Maths Hubs. This provides an opportunity for colleagues to get up to speed with any recent research or guidance reports and discuss these together as a group. We will then take one or two areas of focus for the rest of the meeting which centre around specific areas of Mathematics pedagogy and the strategic role of the Maths Leader in school. There are always lots of ‘take-aways’ for leaders to take back and share with staff in school and time to network and share common areas of challenge and good practice. The focus of our termly meetings are driven by the current needs of the group which are informed by our Maths Network steering group and evaluations from previous sessions.

Once a year we have our Maths Conference which brings together our whole network for an inspiring day exploring new and innovative practice. The focus for our conference is driven by the needs of the network and provides an opportunity to hear from a number of exciting guest speakers. For details of previous speakers see below.

Keeping in touch between meetings is also supported through our private Maths Network online forum (managed through Facebook). Network members receive access to this group and can use it to post questions and share information throughout the year.

All network meeting resources, recordings and useful links are made available to network members and their schools, via our online resource hub housed on our website. All network members receive personal access to this area to ensure that they can access resources quickly and easily throughout the year.
