Research around Teaching at Kineton High School
Kineton High School is an Evidence Informed Practice school:
Kineton High School firmly believes in using academic research to inform curriculum planning and delivery. As part of our commitment to evidence informed practice each teacher embarks on a journey of research in the classroom every year. This largely involves trialling new ideas based on sound academic research and working with a group of children to improve both their confidence and attainment in the subject. The outcomes of the research are generally shared to staff at the end of the year and publicised in a book. Recent projects which have been shared across the school have involved the use of music to improve concentration in coursework-based subjects, how to differentiate tests so that every child has the confidence to have a go and the role of a universal positive praise system at the start of every lesson. The current research projects are based around stretching and challenging the students with their learning across all subjects.
