We are committed to and recognise the importance of teachers and leaders being involved in the understanding, use and development of research to improve aspects of teaching, learning and leadership.

The national research and development network makes research more accessible to schools. It supports teaching school alliances to engage in research and development activities with their higher education institution partners and in regional and national networks.

It undertakes research with schools on priority topics and themes agreed by teaching schools. This will provide:

• a practical understanding of how to address the important issues facing teaching schools
• an evidence base which can contribute to school improvement and practice
