Like most schools, this half term we have been thinking a great deal about our school improvement priorities and how the research evidence can support us with this. The EEF do a great job of distilling evidence on key themes into guidance reports, which we (Durrington Research School) use to shape our training programmes.
Below are some of the EEF documents that have shaped our approach to school improvement. They also shape the training programmes we lead as a Research School. We will be using a blended delivery approach for all of our programmes:
- Day 1 – 10.30am-3.30pm, face to face at Durrington High School
- 3 x 2hr online modules
- Day 2 – 10.30am-3.30pm, face to face at Durrington High School
Throughout the programmes we will focus on supporting school leaders to:
- Clarify the problem they are trying to solve, linked to their school improvement priorities.
- Understand how the research evidence might help to address this.
- Produce an effective implementation plan, aimed at mobilising the evidence back at their school.
- Think carefully how they will evaluate the impact of the new approaches they implement

Have a great rest this half term and we look forward to working with many of you over the coming year.
