As we work with our cohorts of schools through our School Improvement Program, we are building a knowledge base as to what aspects of the wider educational system can help or hinder schools as they try to achieve better outcomes for their students.
We are building an evidence base which we use to advocate for positive change to the system, processes or legislation shaping educational practice. We do this with the goal to enable all schools to deliver a better quality of education, for all their students.
