Kyra Research School

Five schools across England will become focal-points of education research in their region after receiving funding from the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) and the Institute for Effective Education (IEE). Kyra Teaching School Alliance are delighted to be one of these Research Schools, leading the initiative in Lincolnshire and across the East Midlands.


At the Kyra research school we will:
  • Inspire engagement, by making visible ‘what works’ and making it accessible to all practitioners
  • Grow capacity, through encouraging leaders and teachers at all levels to be responsible for evidence-based practice in their classroom, with support from our core practitioner team
  • Identify local champions, who will model and innovate in their schools and their clusters
  • Build partnerships, harnessing our existing networks and developing new ones across the East Midlands region
  • Plan for sustainability, we will create an effective team approach, where ownership and participation levels are high and sustainability is inherent
  • Be ambitious for children, we will develop and deliver our vision of transforming the lives of the children we serve.
