Research Learning Communities in association with Institute of Education

Research focus - ‘Improving literacy through growth mindsets’.

How RLC works

2-3 ‘evidence champions’ from each school within the Research Learning Community.

The RLCs bring together evidence champions from around five schools. They come together for a one-day work shop four times a year to examine research and evidence  relating to an agreed area of focus, and to develop, apply and evaluate school or key stage-wide improvement strategies based on this evidence.

Our Research Learning Community consists of:

Dilkes Academy

South Rise Primary School

St Thomas More

Which is facilitated by Karen Spence-Thomas
