The other school improvement tabs from the menu will direct you to a number of other key tried and tested resources.  Here we highlight some additional key resources for you.

White Paper: The importance of capturing evidence of children’s progress

This white paper has been prepared by Naace through the support provided by Fujitsu. The project to explore this involved telephone interviews with seven schools, followed by visits to three schools to interview several teachers in depth. In addition to this white paper there is a series of short videos (see above) in which teachers explain why they believe capturing evidence of pupils’ progress is important and how this captured evidence is used to help increase pupils’ engagement and to raise their achievement. Their videos are available in the Third Millennium Learning Award area of the Naace website.
