Cheshire & Wirral Maths Hub

Strategic Board

The Maths Hubs Strategic Board


Maths Hub Strategic Boards are established for two principal reasons:

  • to ensure the Maths Hub demonstrates transparency and is open to external scrutiny regarding its work, and
  • to enable the Maths Hub to draw upon strategic advice and support from people with relevant specialist expertise and local knowledge.

The large majority of members of the Strategic Board (including the chair) are independent of the Maths Hub Lead School (and any trust the school is part of, when this applies).
