Event Details

A School's Eye View, led by Dr Caroline Creaby (Sandringham School, Hertfordshire) 

  1. What does today’s education landscape look like from the point of view of schools?
  2. What’s the impact of tightening school funding?
  3. How can teachers’ professional practice best be developed and empowered?
  4. How do schools support their most disadvantaged young people?
  5. What are the areas we as funders should focus on?

These are some of the questions Caroline Creaby will seek to address in our next School Funders’ Network session.

Dr Creaby is Deputy Headteacher at Sandringham, an Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ secondary school in Hertfordshire, which leads on a number of key national programmes. As well as being a National Teaching School, Sandringham co-leads a Teaching School Alliance, delivering high-quality training across the local area, and trains teachers of the future as a designated Initial Teacher Training awarding body. In 2017, it was designated a national Research School by the EEF and Institute for Effective Education, with Dr Creaby as its director. 

You can follow her on Twitter @CarolineCreaby and follow the new Research School @SandResearch.

If you know of other funders who you think might be interested, please let Stephen Tall know their names so we can send them an invitation.

The Schools Funders' Network is a group of grant-makers that the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) convenes in partnership with the Association of Charitable Foundations (ACF), the membership body for UK foundations and grant-making charities. 

Membership of this Network is open to grant-makers with an active interest in funding work to address educational disadvantage within state-funded schools and colleges for children and young people aged 5-18. The focus of the group is on practical learning from our grant-funded projects, identifying ‘what next?’ steps with the aim of greater collaboration between funders.
