Who we are
Welcome to the Cornwall and West Devon Maths Hub, led by Truro and Penwith College, Cornwall, part of the national network of Maths Hubs that work together in the national Maths Hub programme.
We cover the geographical area of Cornwall and West Devon.
Among our key, strategic partners are the following, working with strategic partners such as the Torbay Teaching School Alliance, the North Devon Teaching School Alliance, University of Exeter and the Further Maths Support Programme (FMSP).
What we do
We support mathematics across phase to improve attainment, progress and participation in mathematics through high quality teaching, learning and leadership. We take forward activities which can help schools and colleges to:
- Focus on mastery pedagogy for primary and secondary mathematics in the China-England research & innovation project
- Explore mastery pedagogy for primary mathematics in the use of high quality text books
- Build Post-16 participation, including take-up of Core Maths and Further Maths qualifications
We work with other Maths Hubs through the national programme, and some of our work groups are shared. Each Maths Hub however runs its own programme of events and projects. If you are interested in finding out about what other Hubs in the South West are doing, then please click on the following links:
“Entering into the Maths Hub mastery project, I have to admit that my knowledge of the mastery concept, and what this looked like in practice, was somewhat confused due to previous mixed messages and little clarity provided from ‘up high’. The Maths Hub has been great in providing this clarity, particularly in how to create a balance between delivering Fluency, Problem Solving and Reasoning. Taking the best bits (and not all!) from the Shanghai observations back to school has changed our mindset with regards to our expectations and curriculum delivery. The mood throughout the whole school has changed; children are enjoying Maths and teachers are enjoying this new approach, which is already showing a positive impact on teaching and learning.”
