Improving educational opportunities for young people from non-privileged backgrounds and increasing social mobility

Robbie Coleman, Research and Communications Manager, Education Endowment Foundation (EEF)

In this session I’ll be speaking about how evidence can help teachers make decisions and improve outcomes for pupils from low income families.

There are currently over 2,000 schools around the country working together to find the most effective ways to raise attainment for students eligible for free school meals. I’ll be talking about the latest results from these projects, funded by the Education Endowment Foundation, which looked at teaching assistants, summer schools and effective feedback and many other topics beside.

I’ll discuss how educational research can support schools to identify promising approaches, allowing teachers to devote their time and attention to the things that make the biggest difference.
