The Research Schools Network was set up in 2016 to lead the way in the use of evidence-based teaching. There are currently 37 Research Schools in the network across England, appointed by the Education Endowment Foundation.

Research Schools work with other schools in their local area to help them use evidence more effectively to inform their teaching. They act as a source of information and provide training and CPD on how to improve classroom practice based on the best available evidence.

The programme of training sessions covers a wide variety of topics related to the curriculum and school improvement. Literacy courses include:

  • Improving Literacy at Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2
  • Reading, Oracy and Vocabulary
  • Oracy and Learning Recovery
  • Bridging the Word Gap at Transition
  • What Every Secondary Teacher Can Do About Reading

Cost: Prices vary but range from Free to £350/person.
