Raising achievement and closing gaps


How can your staff help all pupils achieve their potential? This module applies recent research and excellence in school practice to enable schools to raise aspirations, using well-evidenced strategies to identify and address gaps relating to ethnicity, gender and social background.

This module is suitable for teachers and middle leaders from early years to secondary education. There are four 90-minute sessions available. However, you may wish to adapt the content to suit your timings and the needs of your staff. To get maximum benefit from the module, we recommend that the sessions are run consecutively, with sufficient time between sessions for participants to complete the inter-session tasks.


This module was developed in partnership with David Birch, an experienced school leader and a specialist in pupil achievement. David Birch has extensive experience of school leadership as a headteacher, school improvement partner and leadership coach. He is also associate director of the National Education Trust and works as an associate education expert at The Key.
