Unlocking Maths Success

Guston Church of England Primary School , Dover

We spoke to Jonathan Wells, Guston Primary School's Assistant Head and Year 5 Class Teacher to find out how the school uses Star Maths and Freckle and the impact they have had over the past two years on bolstering pupils’ maths development.


An Instant Impact with Freckle at Windsor Park CE Middle School

Windsor Park CE Middle School, Staffordshire, England

Windsor Park CE Middle School has been using Accelerated Reader and Star Reading since 2013. In 2021 the school introduced Freckle to promote maths engagement and accelerated maths practice amongst pupils throughout Key Stage 2.

Since implementing Freckle, both attainment and math progress for last year's year-six cohort were classed as sig+. This means that they were significantly better than national averages.


Targeted Maths Intervention and a Reduced Workload at Summerfield Primary School

Summerfield Primary School, Birmingham, England

Summerfield Primary School has been using Freckle maths practice since March 2022 to support targeted intervention and to reduce teacher workload.

We reached out to Mathematics Lead Rebecca Gray about how Freckle's maths practice from Renaissance autonomously provides differentiated and accurate math practice tasks to pupils aligned to the national curriculum without increasing their workload.


Closing the Gap in Maths with Freckle at Bramley Sunnyside Junior School

Bramley Sunnyside Junior School has been using Star Maths assessments since 2018 to support the school's maths development strategy. In 2022 the school introduced Freckle maths practice further to help the proficiency of numeracy skills for all pupils. In the summer term of 2022, we discovered that the pupils of Bramley Sunnyside Junior School had completed almost 5,000 Freckle maths practice tasks in two academic terms.
