Research Schools

Research Schools aim to lead the way in the use of evidence-based practice. Through the network they will share what they know about putting research into practice, and support schools in their region to make better use of evidence to inform their teaching and learning so that they really make a difference in the classroom.

They will do this by:

  • Encouraging schools in their network to make use of evidence-based programmes and practices through regular communication and events
  • Providing training and professional development for senior leaders and teachers on how to improve classroom practice based on the best available evidence
  • Building local capacity to support the use of evidence and evidence informed practices

The local Research School for The Golden Thread Teaching School Hub is the Staffordshire Research School.

Visit their website to participate in a wide range of high-quality professional development underpinned by EEF research and practice:
