Settrington All Saints' Primary School– To become a National Research School

Settrington All Saints' Primary School, the Lead School for Research in the Esk Valley Teaching Alliance, has been designated as a National Research School, and is one of eleven schools to have won funding to boost the quality of teaching in their region through better use of research.

The new Research Schools – part-funded through the Government’s Opportunity Areas programme and part of a joint initiative between the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) and the Institute for Effective Education (IEE) - were unveiled by the Education Secretary Justine Greening at a summit hosted by the Sutton Trust on 12 July 2017.

Settrington Primary will receive additional funding over three years to become the focal point of evidence-based practice in the North Yorkshire Coast and Ryedale region, and build networks between large numbers of schools. They’ll develop a programme of support and events to get more teachers using research evidence in ways that make a difference in the classroom.

Mari Palmer, Headteacher at Settrington All Saints' and Strand Lead for research Esk Valley Alliance said:

‘We are delighted and thrilled to have been designated as a Research School and to have the opportunity to work collaboratively with the Education Endowment Foundation, Institute for Effective Education and Research Schools Network. This will enable us to further develop our work with schools, promote the use of evidence based practice and ultimately improve outcomes for children and young people in the North Yorkshire & Ryedale Coastal and rural regions.’
