About us

At the London North East Maths Hub, we believe that all pupils deserve the opportunity to access and master a high-quality mathematics curriculum that is engaging, challenging and world class. We serve a diverse and multicultural community with 4 out of our 6 boroughs being amongst the 10% most deprived local authorities in the UK. We strongly believe that education is a means out of deprivation and provides a real opportunity for change.

We seek to harness the maths leadership and expertise within our area, to develop and spread excellent practice, for the benefit of all pupils and students. We believe in collaborative approaches to developing and growing specialist knowledge in the local network in order to build a thriving professional learning community.

Our Local Leaders of Maths Education are recruited through a robust process that includes observations to ensure that teachers and leaders of the highest standards join the Hub. The LLME are at the forefront of leading change and collaborate in a thriving professional learning community with a love of maths and a relentless passion for bringing about transformative outcomes for all pupils from all backgrounds.

The London North East Maths Hub is one of 40 Maths Hubs that together serve all the regions of England. Each Maths Hub is open to working with any schools and colleges, from early years providers to post-16 institutions, in the broad geographical area that it covers.

Each Maths Hub is a partnership, led locally by an outstanding school or college. The lead school identifies strategic partners, who help plan and evaluate the hub’s work, and operational partners, who help carry out the hub’s work.

The London North East Maths Hub is based in Elmhurst Primary School in Newham. It was selected as the lead school through a rigorous process run by the Department for Education (DfE), the National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL), and the National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics (NCETM).

The Maths Hubs network benefits from the support of a number of Strategic Advisers. These include Ofsted, the Teaching School Council, the Joint Mathematical Council (JMC), and the Advisory Committee on Mathematics Education (ACME), Specialist Leaders of Education (SLEs), NCETM accredited Professional Development Leads; universities; subject associations; and employers.
