Research and Development

Ellen tsaEllen tsaEllenborough & Ewanrigg Infant School is currently involved with the ‘Closing the Gap’ research and development project involving the use of a Numicon Intervention project to raise attainment in mathematics.  It involves testing a group of children entitled to pupil premium; who are then divided into two groups; one of the groups  will receive Numicon sessions.  The groups will then be retested and results analysed to ascertain if the Numicon Intervention has raised attainment in mathematics.

The project is funded and developed by the National College and there may be opportunities for Alliance partners to take part in other similar projects in future years.
