Open Access research that is helping to improve educational outcomes for children

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Education, including those researching educational and social practices in curricular subjects. Research in this area seeks to understand the complex influences that increase curricula capacity and engagement by studying how curriculum practices relate to cultural, intellectual and social practices in and out of schools and nurseries.

Research at the School of Education also spans a number of other areas, including inclusive pedagogy, philosophy of education, health and wellbeing within health-related aspects of education (e.g. physical education and sport pedagogy, autism and technology, counselling education, and pedagogies for mental and emotional health), languages education, and other areas.

Abstract

In response to recommendations from the Renfrewshire Tackling Poverty Commission 2015, Renfrewshire Council implemented a series of interventions funded by the Scottish Attainment Challenge Initiative. The Exploring Pedagogy in Primary 1 (EPP1) project is one of a series of projects that form part of this 2-year intervention to support the improvement of educational outcomes for children in Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation (SIMD) deciles one and two within Renfrewshire Council. The EPP1 project aims to improve children’s educational outcomes and experiences through a targeted professional development programme (PDP) exploring pedagogical approaches and theories to inform practice.
