Curriculum Success Stories
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.
Yeo Valley Primary School, Barnstaple
We spoke to Abigail Fleming, KS2 Deputy Phase Lead, who has been using Star Maths since she joined Yeo Valley Primary School as a NQT in 2018. When she joined, the school had recently started using Star Maths and, in 2021, it decided to also adopt Freckle as the products are closely aligned. Since adopting Renaissance solutions the school has seen immense progress in maths and numeracy amongst its students.
Oasis Academy New Oak, Bristol, England
Oasis Academy New Oak has been using Accelerated Reader and Star Reading since 2021 to support the school's reading development strategy.
In April 2022, the school received a 'Good' Ofsted inspection report with specific reference to the school's revived reading initiative.
