Our Research School
Doncaster Research School by Partners in Learning aims to lead the way in the use of evidence-based practice and bring research closer to schools. Through our existing networks we will share what we know about putting research into practice, and support schools to make better use of evidence to inform their teaching and learning so that they really make a difference in the classroom.
- Encourage schools to make use of evidence-based programmes and practices through regular communication and events.
- Provide training and professional development for senior leaders and teachers on how to improve classroom practice based on the best available evidence.
- Support schools to develop innovative ways of improving teaching and learning and provide them with the expertise to evaluate their impact.
As a Research School for the Doncaster Opportunity Area, much of our work will be developed in response to the social mobility opportunity area strategy plans. These will identify key objectives and actions to improve social mobility, diminish differences for disadvantaged pupils and ‘level up opportunity’.
