Our year 5/6 puzzle club is beginning on Thursday 22nd February 2018. If you are interested in your child attending these sessions, please speak to Mrs. Dootson.


From September 2017, we have changed our maths scheme of work to the "White Rose Hub" scheme of work. The scheme has come highly recommended to us, by lots of other Oldham schools who are using it with great success. A very exciting time for us!!


"The Maths Hubs programme, led by the NCETM, brings together mathematics education professionals in a collaborative national network of hubs, each locally led by an outstanding school or college.

Maths Hubs harness all maths leadership and expertise within an area, to develop and spread excellent practice, for the benefit of all pupils and students. Work ranges across many areas and includes teaching for mastery.

The national dimension of the programme is made possible by the hubs collaborating as a national group, pooling experience, expertise and ideas as a network, and meeting once a term at the National Maths Hubs Forum. This is a new way of fast-tracking current, school-based practice and research to an environment where national policy objectives can be explored and new ideas formulated.

The White Rose Maths Hub is based in Halifax, West Yorkshire and is one of 35 Government funded Maths Hubs."

On Wednesday 29th of November, the maths team completed the second round of the competition! Only five schools in the whole of the country went through to the national final, we didn't quite get through but the children had amazing feedback about their teamwork!

Well done! We are all so proud of you!
