Understand evidence in this area and factors underpinning success
Explore research around the gender gap in literacy, including the differences in attainment and attitudes. We unpick the key areas known to impact boys' success and inform you of the strategies we know work well in tackling these.
Identify an area of enquiry based on the characteristics and achievement of boys in their school
Compare your school’s attainment with the national data in order to identify their specific focus areas for development, be it reading, writing or spoken language. The area identified will become the focus for their project.
Develop an action plan with strategies learned from action research
We provide the content, structure and methodology for participants to produce a whole school/cluster based action research project. The research will explore and address the issues identified back in school with the aim to improve boys’ attainment.
Build a learning community of participants
This joint practice development aims to create an environment of collaborative study. Participants will learn from each other, share practice and examine different approaches and challenges. We encourage the group to take what they have learned back into their schools and trial approaches and see what works best for them.
