Innovation Project

In September we will also be looking for a group of schools to work with us on pilot research projects called the Innovation Project. These projects have shown the potential for having a big impact on student progress in small trials that we have conducted and we would like to test them in a wider context. They include:

  • Direct instruction of vocabulary
  • Spacing in mathematics
  • Flash marking in English.

Next Thursday is our 3rd Maths collaboration meeting.  We would like to encourage all heads of Maths/Maths colleagues to attend this session where the focus will be on the new GCSE maths exam and promote a professional conversation about tier of entry.  The timing of this meeting allows staff to return to their schools and make changes before the change of tier exam deadline.
