School culture and practice - supporting the disadvantaged.

In recent years considerable attention has been directed to how the attainment of
disadvantaged pupils can be improved. There has been particular interest in the
improved performance of disadvantaged pupils in London schools since the mid-1990s,
which has resulted in a relatively small gap in attainment between disadvantaged pupils
and their peers in the capital compared to the more sizeable gap within other regions of
England. Research has examined the ‘London Effect’ from a number of different angles,
from the effects of policy initiatives, accountability and governance, to demographics,
pupil characteristics and workforce factors.
This new research report adds another piece to a growing jigsaw. The research is based
on two-day, in-depth, qualitative case studies of 16 primary and 7 secondary schools
across England, conducted between September 2016 and July 2017. Our analysis builds
on an established body of literature on school cultures and practices, considering a range
of factors spanning the intangible assumptions and values that teachers hold through to
the observable, concrete behaviours that emerge from them. We understand school
practices as emerging from a school’s culture; they are the most concrete, visible aspect
of that culture and allow insights into its constituent underlying assumptions and values.
The research provides an in-depth analysis of a set of school cultures and practices that
existing research has linked to positive outcomes for disadvantaged pupils. These
cultures and practices range from how schools support parents’ and pupils’ aspirations
and expectations, to the way in which they use data and evidence to monitor outcomes
and how they respond to the latest developments in research. Through interviews with
teachers, senior leaders and governors; focus groups with parents and pupils; and
observations of lessons, assemblies, meetings, corridors and playgrounds in each
school, we have been able to build-up an in-depth picture of variation and consistency in
cultures between schools, and the ways in which cultures influence practice. Further
details of the methodology are provided in the Introduction and in Annex 2.
The report categorises the cultures and practices in schools according to 11 themes.

Geography a force for broadening the mind.

The comedian and television presenter Michael Palin has praised the study of geography as a force for broadening the mind as fresh figures show a spike in take-up for the subject at schools in England.

The man behind travel shows including Around the World in 80 Days, Pole to Pole and Full Circle says studying geography is key to understanding the world and “helping us to realise that we all share the same planet”.

Palin’s comments come as A-level and GCSE geography entries in England are on the rise. GCSE entries increased by 36% and A-level entries by 21% between 2012 and 2017.

In an interview with the Press Association, Palin said geography was a vital subject in the modern world, broadening minds and encouraging an understanding of different countries and cultures.

Relationships and Sex Education for Special Needs.

There’s a coffee-morning atmosphere in the classroom at Oak Field School, Nottingham, as teacher Tom Hall sits with six teenage boys, offering stories, encouragement and light relief. This is a sex education lesson. Laminated “OK/Not OK” cards are scattered around the table which, along with illustrations of sexual anatomy, show actions such as “touch,” “cuddle,” “masturbation”. The boys do not smirk or titter, but point and sign: it is OK to cuddle your sister; it is not OK to kiss your friends.

“Is it OK at your age to have a boyfriend or girlfriend?” Hall asks. James, 16, says yes, with vigour, but something is playing on his mind: “Can you get married twice?” he asks. “You mean at the same time?” James nods. “No,” Hall smiles, “That might be a risky business.” It’s a lesson in love learned sooner rather than later.

Girl pupils and STEM subjects.

A wonderful announcement relating to women in education recently went almost unnoticed. The world’s richest countries, led by Canada, committed more than £2bn towards the training and education of women and girls in the poorest. The Canadian government described it as, “the single largest investment in education for women and girls in crisis and conflict situations,” and it’s expected to directly impact the lives of eight million individuals and millions more in their families and communities. In this Year of the Woman when we celebrate the centenary of the right to vote, equal access to education is obviously vital, but in countries like our own, it’s not just about building schools and supplying books.
