The mathematics curriculum leader plays an important role in leading the mathematics curriculum in primary schools. They experience successes and face challenges associated with this leadership role. The perceptions that 25 mathematics leaders held about the successes and challenges they experienced whilst participating in a school mathematics project are reported. Main successes included improved mathematics planning practices using key ideas, transformed cultures concerning mathematics education, and greater use of quality tasks. The main challenge related to sustaining improvements and maintaining the profile of mathematics in school improvement agendas after involvement in the project.
