North Yorkshire County Council and Rosendale Research School have run a year-long collaborative partnership programme called ‘Achievement Unlocked’. The programme focusses on improving outcomes for disadvantaged learners in North Yorkshire schools. This is the second cohort of schools we have worked with. The first was in 2016-17.
The programme involves a series of school reviews, led by Rosendale Research School, input on from national experts on key themes that arise and follow up visits. The programme is bookended with by a launch and ‘wrap up conference’. There was also a study trip to visit successful schools beyond North Yorkshire. Expert input came from UCL Institute of Education, Aspirer Research School, Huntingdon Research School, Lyons Hall School, Burt Mill Academy (both Essex) and many more.
The report, which can be accessed here, highlights ten foundations for tackling educational disadvantage. These are as follows:
- Consistent, values-led leadership
High quality, inclusive teaching and learning
Characteristics of less successful learners
Addressing barriers to learning
Literacy and oral language
A school-wide understanding of the strategy
Monitoring and evaluation
