In the UK today, there are areas where a staggering one in six children are currently living in poverty (Social Mobility and Child Poverty Commission).
Ambition School Leadership's teaching leaders programme has been created to enhance and accelerate your professional development, improve pupil outcomes in the key areas of reading, writing and maths and close achievement gaps for disadvantaged children.
Here are details of education research reports released in the last few weeks.
The Social Mobility Foundation runs completely free of charge programmes featuring mentoring, internships with top companies, university application support, as well as professional development and skills workshops for high achieving young people across the UK.
Please find for your interest, details of research reports released in the last week.
"It’s too late to talk about narrowing the gap at 11; social disadvantage must be tackled so much earlier if the government is serious about improving social mobility."
"As this Save the Children report proves, nursery schools achieve their fantastic results by employing more highly qualified staff"
Middle-class families are ‘hoarding the best opportunities’ and creating a ‘glass floor’, which protects their children from downward mobility and makes it harder for able children from less advantaged backgrounds to succeed, says the Social Mobility and Child Poverty Commission.
Elite firms are systematically excluding bright working-class applicants from their workforce, reveals the Social Mobility and Child Poverty Commission.
The Social Mobility Foundation’s free of charge programmes provide support and guidance to high-achieving year 12 students from less privileged backgrounds so they can access some of the top universities and professions.
Louis Coiffait of NAHT Edge, a new section of NAHT for aspiring school leaders said:
“Working in schools with children from disadvantaged backgrounds is a real challenge. The report recommends that teachers who take up this challenge should be rewarded with higher pay. We know that good teaching makes the greatest difference to children from poorer backgrounds, so this is an interesting idea. A good first step would be a fair national funding formula and clarity that the pupil premium could be spent in this way.
It feels great to be told we are brilliant, and it makes us more successful.
As every teacher will tell you, the start of a new school year brings with it a tangible sense of new beginnings.
Newly appointed middle leaders could benefit from some tailored training in their new roles, according to a new research project.
