Outstanding east London teachers were recognised at a recent awards ceremony celebrating excellence in maths education.
London North East Maths Hub recently held its third Teacher of the Year Awards, with Tim Harrington from Lansbury Lawrence Primary School in Poplar receiving the top prize for outstanding contribution.
In its sixth year, the Maths Hub is a Department for Education funded programme based at Elmhurst Primary in Forest Gate that works with partner schools in seven boroughs, including Tower Hamlets and Barking and Dagenham.
East Ham's own Bobby Seagull - a mathematician, teacher and writer of University Challenge fame - hosted the awards ceremony at the Sydney Russell School in Dagenham.
London North East Maths Hub coordinator Meryl Jordan said: "It was a wonderful event where you could really see what the hub's work is all about: great maths teaching and learning opportunities.
