White Rose maths planning - do you use it?

nlampard 24 May 2016 08:15


I am a year 6 teacher and maths coordinator who is currently looking into the White Rose Maths Hub planning and assessments and accompanying NCETM documents. So far, I really like the planning and am keen for my school to adopt them as a scheme come September but I just wanted to hear other people's opinions on them if you use them? 

I am also really trying to find a primary school (preferably KS2) within my area (Greater London, Bucks, Berks, Oxon) that uses that plans/scheme that I could connect with to chat to and possible visit to see the planning in action.

Does anybody have any thoughts on this planning, any points to consider etc or any contacts in the area that uses them that wouldn't mind me picking their brains?

Hi Natalie,


I have heard good things about the resource but have no experience of schools that use it. Have you looked at Kangaoo Maths, which I think is really good and I know that schools who use it are enthusiastic. If you want to connect with someone to chat with about this resource try David Page at Jennetts Park Junior School in Bracknell. Good luck Russell

I suggest you contact the White Rose Maths Hub directly and they might be able to put you in touch with the schools that have developed them as they have been written for teachers by teachers.

Hi Natalie,

Thanks for your post and email.  I am one of the leads a the White Rose Maths Hub.  We are trying to find you a school in your area that uses our schemes.  I'm waiting for a couple schools to come back to us.  I'm going to send you an email sometime next week to update you.  Sorry for not getting back to you sooner.

Best Wishes

Tony S

Hi Natalie

Have you had any success with what you were looking for from this post? I was about to ask a similar question to you as I'm keen to use this scheme in my own school this Sept.

I was particularly interested in how you took the scheme and matched it to assessing chidren.

Kind regards

Hi Natalie,

I am in the same position as you! 

I am a year 6 teacher and have recently been made Head of Maths. I too have heard good things about the White Rose hub and have had a good look through their resources. I would like our school to start using them, especially the yearly over view as our long term planning. This would really be a leap into the unknown though as we haven't used a scheme for some time. 

My school is in East London, it would be great to keep in contact and see how you get on with White Rose?
