Dissemination of Research
In September 2017 we held our first evening of sharing research projects from schools across Southwark. With wine and canapés! Presentations from our brilliant teachers included:
- Sarah Field and Laura Threadgold on The Workload Challenge: how eight teachers across five schools stopped marking for two terms. How did they do it? What happened to their workload? What happened to pupil progress?
- Michael Eggleton and Georgie McHale on RULER and Mindfulness: how a pilot of the Yale-developed emotional intelligence programme plus an evidence-informed mindfulness intervention transformed the wellbeing and readiness to learn of pupils.
- Nicki Cooper on Tracking Pupil Outcomes from KS2 across Southwark.
- Rory Dearlove, David Windle and Sarah Seleznyov on Lesson Study: using collaborative lesson planning and child-focused lesson observations to raise standards in writing for disadvantaged pupils.
A termly open-access forum for teachers, teaching assistants and anyone involved in education to join together for lively discussion of a hot educational topic. Plus biscuits!
