About the toolkit

The toolkit is based on real life data about what has happened when particular approaches have been used in schools before. This is based on international evidence.

The toolkit does not make definitive claims as to what will work to improve outcomes in a given school. Rather it provides high quality information about what is likely to be beneficial based on existing evidence – ​‘best bets’ for what might work in your own context.

Because the toolkit does not provide definitive answers, it should not be used in isolation. Your professional judgement and expertise is also needed to move from the information in the toolkit to an evidence-informed decision about what will work best in your school.
