The introduction of the new maths curriculum in 2014 raised expectations of what children should be able to achieve by the end of each key stage. At Rising Stars, we wanted to support schools to meet these raised expectations set out by the government. Teachers told us that they wanted a maths scheme that was more than just textbooks given out to children. They wanted a flexible programme with supportive teacher guidance, high-quality textbooks to be used as tools for teaching and easy-to-use digital resources to integrate into teaching to enhance maths lessons.
We took all of this feedback on board and over the last 18 months, we have worked hard to develop Rising Stars Mathematics which we are delighted to be launching today!
Our expert author team, led by Cherri Moseley and Caroline Clissold, have created a carefully structured scheme which provides a clear route through the curriculum, enabling teachers to focus on teaching high-quality lessons to suit their own classroom.

What do schools think of Rising Stars Mathematics?
We asked some schools who have been using the scheme to let us know what they think. The feedback was so positive that we wanted to share some snippets with you.
"It has supported our teachers in understanding the expectations for the new curriculum. It provides engaging, well-pitched activities that allow the children to learn through exploring concepts and topics. The pupil textbooks and workbooks work really well together in allowing children to be independent in their learning." Hayes Primary School
"Rising Stars Mathematics provides the perfect balance between giving teachers structure and guidance whilst still enabling flexibility in how schools tackle a mastery curriculum. It empowers teachers to become experts in every concept, delivering high quality lessons whilst cutting down workload." Walton-le-Dale Primary School
