Research-Based School Improvement

We are committed to improving our classroom practice through inspirational learning which promotes a love of learning. In doing so our work is informed by current research and engagement in research based school improvement. 


Current Research Projects included:

  • 'Primary teachers' struggle for legitimacy of meaning in their practice: to reproduce or resist hegemony, and develop non-hegemonic pedagogies' - Kathleen Taylor (Doctoral student Lincoln University)
  • 'Digital Dialogue: the impact of mobile technology on classroom dialogue' - Dr Adam Hounslow-Eyre (Cambridge Primary Review Trust)


We are part of the KYRA Teaching School Alliance (click on link below to visit the website):

and Cambridge Primary Review Trust Schools' Alliance (click on the link below to visit the website):
