Meols Cop Logo and Name

Meols Cop High School, a designated EEF Research School, will be holding a unique opportunity to find out about how an evidence based approach, rooted in effective educational research, can help to reduce workload in schools.

The conference will not only demonstrate strategies that have effectively helped to reduce workload but also had measurable impact on student outcomes.

There will be opportunities to listen and ask questions of practitioners who have developed their own evidence based approaches.
