Abstract

This report presents findings from a multi-strategy study conducted by UCL Institute of Education, commissioned by and in collaboration with Virtual School Headteachers (VSH) from across the twelve local authorities (LA) in North East England and DAppEdPsy Educational Psychology students from Newcastle University. The overall aim of the project was to gain an insight into teaching and learning practice in schools in North East England at the pupil and whole school level to support the education of children in care. Previously reported research has often highlighted many of the shortcomings of provision in schools and how the education system collectively has not always met the education needs of children and young people in care. It was within this national and regional context that the North East England region of Virtual School Headteachers wanted to learn more about the effective teaching and learning of children and young people in care. Moreover, this study purposefully identified a group of children who had very positive experiences of education and were thriving in their settings, in order to learn more about what success looks like in schools to support the education of children and young people in care. Over the spring and summer terms of 2018, data were collected from an e-survey of over 400 designated teachers (DT) across North East England, focus group meetings with DTs, face-to-face interviews with children and lesson observations. The research is one of the first large scale studies in England to investigate, in depth, teaching and learning practices in schools, for a group of children and young people who experience significant disadvantage.
