STRIVING TOWARDS EXCELLENCE FOR ALL

research and development

Our next research and development event will take place on June 20th 2019. To register your interest or to get involved, please email npalin@thebedonwellfederation.org 

 NFER has now launched its new Self-Review Tool to help schools and colleges review how they are engaging with research and in enquiry, and to show how it can be used with a school improvement plan.

 It is built on over 60 years of experience at NFER as a leading research organisation and research has shown that schools that use academic or professional research findings to support change often have the best outcomes (Schleicher, 2011). The Self-Review Tool is a FREE online tool that provides:

·         A set of eight key statements defining a research-engaged school or college

·         A downloadable chart and report of your results, including suggested next steps

·         Links to resources (from NFER and elsewhere) to help with your school improvement plan

You can do a quick review yourself or set up an account for your school or college to involve all your staff and get a whole-school picture. Try out the tool to see how it can help your school.
