Our vision sees research and development at the heart of school improvement. We have worked hard to establish our opportunities that have become embedded within the practice of our schools. It is an integral part of our ongoing dialogue around improving teaching and learning and is a key strand rather than an ‘add on’.

We have a range of research projects taking place across our schools. A Cambridge University/Mathematics Mastery lesson study project based on groups of teachers deepening understanding of children’s learning in maths and a Institute of Education Growth Mindset project. This is based on feedback to children to develop their ability to take on challenges and new approaches to learning, which continues into 2015/2016.

Both have provided powerful CPD for the staff involved in the projects and have impacted on the teaching and learning of the staff and children directly involved as-well as staff in the wider school community.
