Closing the gender Gap in Writing 56 12 17

Closing the gender Gap in Writing 56 12 17

The 2017 EYFSP National data indicates that boys are under the spot light again as the gender gap in some parts of the country increases.

Did your school have a significant difference in the attainment of boys and girls?

Would you like:

 To increase the percentage of all children achieving a Good Level of Development at the end of the EYFS;

 To close the gap in attainment between boys and girls; and

 Focus on how children working below age related expectations can make better progress whilst improving the attainment for the cohort overall.

We are offering a professional development opportunity for up to 10 schools to work in partnership with the Start Well team (for the school year) to implement an action based research project to improve outcomes for their reception children. The project has been designed to support schools working to close the gender attainment gap in writing development.

Through a combination of CPD sessions, consultant support and networking with the other schools on the programme; each school will conduct a research project to audit current practice, implement practical strategies and evaluate research outcomes.
