The Impact of School Development Planning in Primary Schools (P30).
A 32-month project has been designed to study the process of school development planning in British primary schools and to evaluate the impact of such planning on the work of individual schools, the learning opportunities for individual pupils, and the professional development of individual teachers. When completed in June 1994, this project should be able to provide answers to the following questions: (1) what impact do school development plans and the planning process have on whole school management, classroom learning, and pupil learning; (2) are some plans more effective than others; (3) what are the key elements of successful practice and the implications of these for Local Education Authorities (LEAs) and schools; and (4) do the theoretical postulates apply to the results, or do they need to be modified in light of the study? Interviews, classroom observations, and questionnaires are being used to gather data in 18 classrooms in 9 schools, all located in 3 contrasting LEAs. (MDM)
