Key Voices #43 – Leading a research school with Kate Atkins

This week we talk to Kate Atkins, Headteacher, Rosendale Primary and Research school and CEO Great North Wood Education Trust about how they have successfully used evidence informed practice at their school.

We discuss what it means to be a Research School and how to bridge the gap between academics and the classroom. Kate shares her advice on how to start involving staff in research and implementing new ideas. We also talk about the various approaches to teaching and learning they use at Rosendale including mixed attainment grouping and ReflectED the Metacognition programme they have developed.
