The first cluster meetings start on Monday 9th October. If you are a School-based Lead, please check your emails at the end of this week as your Cluster Lead will be sending the attachments that you need to bring along to the meeting. You can either print them off or save them and work electronically.

Are you a secondary school? Have you registered your preference for the Teachmeet session in December? If you haven't received a doodle poll invitation, please contact Vanessa so you don't miss out!

The Taster session workshop videos are still available on our Youtube Channel - please follow the link below, if you want to be reminded about the research that will be accessed at the start of this year's projects.

It's not too late to register your interest in Mobilise Choice! If your school is yet to decide on which Choice to focus, have a look at the video-clips that explain some of the evidence-base for 2017/18 projects:

Cognitive Theory and Memory

'TAs were initially nervous about peer observations but they generated so much dialogue - they now fully understand the purpose and value the time to discuss them.' Rebecca - SBL at Elsea Park Academy, Bourne.

'TAs were confident with what was expected of their role when Ofsted visited.' Lynsey - SBL at Bourne Abbey.

The Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) has become a strategic partner of the Lincolnshire Learning Partnership, and together we are about to begin our first piece of school improvement support for schools. The aim of the MOBILISE project is to ensure that every school leader in Lincolnshire is supported and equipped to make sense of, and act on, the research evidence of the impact of Teaching Assistants in the workplace. We are delighted that the EEF have agreed to support Lincolnshire schools during this project and work with our Teaching Schools to ensure that all schools and academies, and our pupils, benefit from this research.

The ultimate aim of this project is to build an effective cluster based, school to school infrastructure, which will enable all of us to be “evidence informed” and “evidence ready” in the future – able to rapidly understand, respond and implement research. It will equip teachers and leaders in your school to become champions of the evidence and see outcomes transformed for our pupils. The aim is that the cluster model we create together will be used again and again, every time there is new evidence, helping us to be at the cutting edge of school improvement.

If you have any questions regarding the Mobilise project, please contact the team via email at or telephone: 07769661479.
