The Great North Maths Hub is part of a national collaborative network of 40 Maths Hubs funded by the Department of Education and coordinated by the National Centre of Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics (NCETM). Each Maths Hub is locally led by an outstanding school or college, to develop and spread excellent practice, for the benefit of all pupils and students.
Established in 2014, Great North Maths Hub is led by Churchill Community College, part of the North Tyneside Learning Trust in Wallsend and is supported by our Strategic Board whose key role is to provide strategic advice, challenge and support to the Maths Hub leadership.
We work with all schools and education establishments within Northumberland, North Tyneside, South Tyneside, Newcastle, Gateshead and Sunderland.
At the Great North Maths Hub, our vision is to encourage and support collaboration between schools, colleges and other settings: enabling teachers and educational professionals to work and learn together, developing and improving mathematics teaching, learning and leadership.
- focus on pedagogy, learning from effective practice and research.
- work to make a difference.
- work collaboratively and inclusively.
As part of our role in leading the Great North Maths Hub, we collect and hold a certain amount of data about individuals involved in our work. The data includes name, role (with respect to hub work), school, email address, TRN’s and (in some cases) telephone number. The agreement between us and the Department of Education requires us to monitor and evaluate our work as a Maths Hub, and this is the legal basis for the data that we hold, on, for example, participation in the Work Groups that we coordinate. Such data is reported on a regular basis to the NCETM who manage the Maths Hub programme on behalf of the DfE.
