Solihull school awarded funding for research project

Solihull Editorial 1st May, 2023   0

A SOLIHULL school has secured new funding to form new Research Schools, joining the Education Endowment Foundation’s (EEF) network of Research Schools across England.

Their main role will be to support schools to use evidence to improve teaching practice.

They will provide local and regional support to other schools by communicating research evidence and supporting the translation of this into practice through training, exemplification and school-to-school support.

Tudor Grange Academy will receive funding from September 2023 until July 2026 to improve pupil outcomes through better use of evidence.

This will consist of a core annual grant to cover leadership time, staff development as well as training to support evidence-led practice in the local region.

Professor Becky Francis, CEO of the Education Endowment Foundation, said: “It has never been more important to assist schools in engaging with evidence to inform their approaches to teaching and learning.

“The appointment of these new Research Schools will be a valuable source of support for others in their respective regions, as they strive to meet the needs of their students.

“These latest additions to the EEF’s Research Schools Network offer the opportunity to establish new connections, through which schools across England will be able to share expertise and access practical tools, with the view to raising the attainment of all of their pupils, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds.”
