Case Study - School-based Project
​Highbury Primary School, Cosham

Highbury Primary School developed in conjunction with the University a work-based learning programme entitled ‘Moving to Outstanding Teaching’. 

This involved teachers being involved in action based research projects, which had been identified from school improvement targets. 

The University of Chichester was invited to work with the school to design the content of a postgraduate certificate in professional practice that would enable successful participants to acquire 60–masters level credits.

Drawing on the expertise of colleagues from school and university, a joint programme was developed to meet school needs and was delivered over one academic year. 

As a result teachers undertook action research, which investigated aspects of practice that ultimately enhanced pupil learning outcomes within the school.  

Action research projects included:

  • How does peer coaching affect pupil progress and attitudes to learning for higher attaining children?
  • How does reading interventions impact on pupil progress and attitudes to learning?
  • How can the effective balance of talk and questioning develop pupil’s communication and language skills in Maths in the early years?
  • To explore within the context of my school which interventions are the most effective for accelerating the progress of pupil premium children in Maths.
  • To explore whether creating and composing lyrics to represent the ‘Talk for Writing’ stories would increase the level at which pupils remember the stories in a year 3/4 classroom.
