Teaching and Learning Toolkit keeps growing

An expanded version of the Sutton Trust-EEF (Education Endowment Foundation) Teaching and Learning Toolkit is now available, providing guidance for teachers and schools on how to use their resources to improve the achievement of disadvantaged students. This new version has been developed from the “Pupil Premium Toolkit” and provides a summary of educational research on 21 topics in terms of potential impact on attainment, strength of supporting evidence, cost, and applicability.

A new addition to the Teaching and Learning Toolkit is phonics. The approach shows a moderate impact (an average impact of +4 months) for a moderate cost, and good evidence – three or more meta-analyses from well controlled experiments.

Toolkit shows best way to spend Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium Toolkit is a resource commissioned by the Sutton Trust, and more information has just been published. The idea is that the Toolkit gives teachers and schools guidance on how they might best spend the Pupil Premium to improve the attainment of disadvantaged pupils, specifically in terms of the strength of evidence to support particular practices. The information shows the impact of a particular approach in terms of the extra months of progress a child might be expected to make.
