The Research Schools Network is funded by the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) to create a network of schools that will support the use of evidence to improve teaching practice. At Sandringham, we are proud to be a Research School and work to support teachers and schools in our region to translate research evidence to the classroom.

Research Schools aim to lead the way in the use of evidence-based practice. Through the network we share what we know about putting research into practice, and support schools to make better use of evidence to inform their teaching and learning so that they really make a difference in the classroom.

As a Research School, our core purpose is to:

  • Support engagement with evidence throughout our network of schools and beyond.
  • Communicate the very best of evidence-based practice through our website, blogs, podcast, newsletter and social media.
  • Provide evidence-informed training and modelling, to support teachers and schools to use evidence-based practice.
  • Host conferences and other events.
  • Develop innovations that help improve practice in our classrooms.

At Sandringham, our team is comprised of Dr Caroline Creaby (Research School Director), Kate Mouncey (Research School Lead), Karen Roskilly (Research School Lead) and Claire Godfrey (Research School Coordinator). To find out more, click on the links in bold above.
