Research and Development
The aim is for high quality and worthwhile research to take place in a school environment to direct future educational reform and organisation.
Closing the Gap - Intervention Research Project
St. Monica’s Catholic Teaching School Alliance will be taking part in the Closing the Gap, Test and Learn Intervention Project. This is a research project run by the National College for Teaching and Leadership.
St. Monica’s and St. Philip’s staff will be trained to deliver literacy intervention and the results of this will be combined with other participating schools and analysed to inform best practice across the country.
This is an excellent opportunity for our Alliance to take part in research activities that at the very least will provide a training and experience legacy for staff involved and may well provide new methods and ideas that can drive the improvement of our most disadvantaged pupils.
