Welcome to CODE 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 parts of West Devon, including Plymouth, South Hams, Torbay and Teignbridge. Among our key, strategic partners are the following – the Cornwall Teaching School, Torbay Teaching School Alliance, the North Devon Teaching School Alliance, Marjon and Plymouth Universities and the Advanced Maths Support Programme (AMSP).

We take forward activities that aim to:

  • INSPIRE – a love of mathematics in our children, young people and teachers alike.
  • DEVELOP – support teachers and leaders throughout Cornwall and West Devon by providing access to continuing professional development (CPD), resources and research.
  • EXPLORE – look closely at developing mastery pedagogy in primary, secondary and post 16 settings.
  • COLLABORATE – work closely with other Maths Hubs throughout the national programme and in particular with our fellow South West hubs: Jurassic Maths Hub, Boolean Maths Hub and GLOW Maths Hub

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 regard 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.

CODE Catch-Up Christmas 2020

CODE Catch-Up Christmas 2020

All of us here at CODE hope that you had as good a summer break as you could during these strange and challenging times. As we start the new academic year we continue to be as passionate as ever about supporting mathematics for young people in our area. We’ve modified some of our planned activity which will mean that initially a lot of our work will take place online. We hope, if the situation surrounding COVID allows, that we will be able to resume face-to-face sessions late in the Spring or Summer term.

CODE Catch-Up Summer 2020

Wow – what a strange and busy year it has been! So much has happened which we couldn’t have anticipated and during these exceptionally challenging circumstances some of our activity has inevitably had to be changed and adapted. Having said this, it is testament to everyone involved in the CODE hub and their desire to improve teaching and learning in mathematics for all young people that we have continued to offer a programme of support and development. Thank you.
