Research & Development
Teaching is a profession that demands that everyone is a lifelong learner. We recognise that to ensure we are continually challenging ourselves to improve we need to engage in high quality research. Primary Excellence recognises that Research and Development is closely linked to Continual Professional Development. As professionals we need to continually learn from the very best practice and challenge this practice against the most up to date research.
In our alliance it is important to us that our research work is not separate from our core focus, therefore first and foremost our R&D activity is concerned with ensuring excellent pedagogy.
Every year Primary Excellence will run a number of research projects, led by outstanding professionals within our Alliance. Our partner HEI’s will provide the support and academic rigor to ensure that this research not only feeds into all our schools but can be published nationally and internationally.
