Tackling Educational Inequality - What Really Works?
04 Dec
Tackling Educational Inequality – What Really Works? Closing the gap between the achievement of disadvantaged pupils who are entitled to free school meals and their peers is one of the biggest challenges faced by policy makers, teachers and school leaders in England. There is now a well-established body of research evidence that shows the gap is still wide and has not narrowed much over the period. A particular concern is that inequality in education outcomes has grown for some groups such as Black Caribbean, White British Working Class and disadvantaged pupils. The speaker is Dr Feyisa Demie, Lambeth's Head of Research and Adviser for School Self-Evaluation, talking about research he has recently completed investigating school initiatives nationally. This session looks at what really works in addressing educational inequality in schools. Date: Wednesday 30 January 2019, 7-8.30pm Time: 6.45pm for 7pm start. End 8.30pm Venue: Lambeth Town Hall, Brixton Hill, London SW2 1RW Room: Room THB-06 (basement level) Light refreshments will be available. Full details in the attached flyer. To register simply email lambethgf@gmail.com with your name and the name of your school.

Raising The Game Project
29 Nov
The Lambeth Schools Partnership is running a 2 year project called 'Raising the Game'. Raising the game is a project which has been put together to raise the achievement of Black Caribbean pupils in Lambeth. Whilst all pupils do well in Lambeth compared to the attainment and achievement of pupils nationally, our black Caribbean pupils do not do as well as their peers and even though this is a national issue, we are trying to target it locally. Schools have been chosen to work with us on a variety of initiatives based on detailed research, as to what makes a difference. In every Lambeth school cluster, there is at least one school that is taking part in the project. The participating schools will regularly feed back to their cluster on the progress of the project. One of the initiatives which we have already carried out was an event called Aim High; we invited different motivational speakers to speak to the children and give them aspirations for their future. https://vimeo.com/297069036 This video shows a snapshot of what some of the days looked like and some of the children’s feedback. Some of the other strands of the Raising The Game project are: - Headteacher coaching - Parental engagement - Mentoring for pupils - Reviewing Behaviour policies - Developing a toolkit to create an inclusive diversified Curriculum.
