The Research Schools Network Innovation Evaluation Grants are available to schools that are working closely with the Research Schools Network. They are awarded by the IEE to provide funding for pilot evaluations of innovations in teaching and learning approaches.

The five new projects chosen to receive a Research Schools Network Innovation Evaluation Grant are:

  • After school reading support, Northgate High School, Ipswich
  • Science learning journals, Heathfield Community College, East Sussex
  • Self-regulated strategy development, Highfield School, Wolverhampton
  • Reading masters, Vauxhall Primary School, London.

All evaluations will be underway by September 2018 and results will be published early in the 2019/20 academic year.

Applications for the fifth, and final, round of funding closed earlier this month, and the successful projects will be announced in September 2018.
