In February 2019, the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) released their evaluation conclusions that students in schools which have implemented this flexible programme, co-designed between SSAT and Dylan Wiliam, made the equivalent of two months’ additional progress at GCSE.
Why implement the programme?

Tailored to your school’s individual needs to maximise the programme’s impact
Whole-school culture change

Low cost, high impact
Positive impact on teacher workload and practice at a minimal cost per student
Angelina Idun, Director at SSAT, reflects on the first event in our Summer Series: What now for learners? An opportunity for leaders across the network to come together, take a step back, and look to the future.
Change needs to be led by the profession – join the conversation and lets redesign schooling, so that every child, whatever their ability or context, leaves school fully prepared to lead fulfilled and purposeful lives.
In his think piece submission for the SSAT Leadership Legacy Project, Steven Robinson, Head of Physical Education & Head of KS3 at Hope Academy, explains how a project originally designed to celebrate student success has successfully been adapted into a virtual pastoral programme which also supports transition between years 6 and 7.
