About Us

At Bright Pi we are passionate about supporting all those involved with the teaching and learning of mathematics; raising standards and helping all to achieve their best in the early years and primary phases.

Based in the Midlands, we form a highly regarded team with wide ranging experience and up to date skills providing support to schools across the UK. The team has taught across the early years and primary age range and all have experience in local authority school improvement working with teachers, leaders and other stakeholders.

Having worked as regional co-ordinators for the National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics (NCETM), Bright Pi maintains a close working relationship with the NCETM delivering their ever-evolving national ‘Professional Development Lead’ programme. We are proud to work alongside other partner organisations including the National Maths Hub Network. We play a key role on the strategic board for our local hub and lead on the Mastery Readiness programme for the Origin Maths Hub. This supports those schools starting their journey in Teaching for Mastery, as well as those developing their practice. In addition, Bright Pi has also provided operational external key stage 1 moderation for the Standards and Testing Agency (STA), monitoring practice in various local authorities across the country.

We are accredited by NCETM as Professional Development Leads and support individual schools as well as networks with bespoke packages of support, tailored to specific need and context. Bright Pi also offers CPD sessions for all those involved in mathematics education, supporting improvement in both subject and pedagogical knowledge. We are keen to raise the profile of mathematics as a subject and enjoy working with parents, governors and the wider community.

Our Vision

At Bright Pi we strongly believe that all pupils can succeed in mathematics. All pupils should have the opportunity to experience the fun and enjoyment of learning mathematics. This is achieved by working practically during lively and engaging lessons which are focused and planned to meet the needs of all learners.

Pupils should be able to master the mathematical knowledge and understanding required to enable them to become competent mathematicians using a range of skills to solve problems inside and outside of the classroom environment and across a variety of subjects. They should have the opportunity to develop a sense of number and become proficient and fluent in calculating using a range of mental and written strategies.

Pupils should be challenged to think deeply about their mathematics and to engage in rich mathematical discussion using appropriately vocabulary to explain their reasoning and ideas concisely. They should be able to participate in mathematical enquiry and investigation, experiencing the awe and wonder of pattern, connections and relationships and solving problems for the first time.
