A quick guide on how to raise attainment

This is a really important piece of research that all governors should have a read of and use as part of discussions with their headteachers.

It very simply summarises 20 popular methods of raising attainment and weighs the research in to them. A simple table lays out the cost, likely benefit and the strength of the research in to each. It then goes on to give a one page summary of each of the methods and the research. It’s concise and very readable and some of the results are surprising.

So if you are looking to raise attainment for disadvantaged students in your school (and if not, why not) you really need to read this.
