Following discussions with the DfE today, I want to inform you of the current position of the Maths Hub.
We recognise it is important for teachers and leaders to stay healthy and focus on supporting contingency plans for their school, local communities and families.
Therefore, we feel it’s sensible to start to reduce non-essential work of the Maths Hub, so with immediate effect we are postponing all school-based face-to-face maths gatherings – Work Group, TRGs and PD events – until after the Easter break when we will review this again. Work Groups Leads should contact their attendees direct, as well as any booked venues, to advise of the postponement.
In the case of school visits, this may still continue as part of the hub’s work at the discretion of the school.
The NW3 Maths Hub team will continue to support schools via email and phone including processing Expressions of Interest for schools and individuals with the funded Primary and Secondary Teaching for Mastery programmes for 2020/21.
PD/SLE Expressions of Interest will also be processed as normal.
Finally, our thoughts go out to all staff working in front line services or perhaps caring for vulnerable family members at this very challenging time.
We thank everyone for their ongoing support and engagement with the NW Maths Hub 3.
Please don’t hesitate in contacting us.
