The National Centre has launched an important new report, Developing mathematics in London Schools.

In the report, several London secondary school headteachers talk about creating and sustaining excellent mathematics departments. The overwhelming message that emerges is the importance of supporting, valuing and promoting teachers and the crucial part that continuing professional development plays in this.

Minister for London Schools Sarah McCarthy-Fry MP, welcomed the report at a launch event at the Clothworkers Hall in East London on 27 January. Other speakers included Jane Jones HMI, Sir Peter Williams, headteacher Delia Smith OBE and teacher Aishling Ryan, Mr Anthony West DL, Master of the Clothworkers Company and NCETM Director Celia Hoyles. More than 60 London headteachers attended.

The National Centre will work with key groups in schools leadership to disseminate the good practice described in the report’s case studies. A similar study among heads in the primary phase will be carried out to support the implementation of Sir Peter Williams’ recent Review of Early Years and Primary Mathematics Education.
