Cushing, Ian – Literacy, 2019
Grammar is a key focus of current UK national curriculum policy, at both primary and secondary school level.

It has been argued that Open Educational Resources (OER) present opportunities for innovation in education. However, there has been a lack of retrospective analysis of the forms of innovation that can emerge through OER, and the processes and challenges these entail. This paper presents a post-project analysis of the diverse uses and impacts of…

Mansfield, Andrew – Curriculum Journal, 2019
This article discusses the challenges faced teaching the promotion of 'British values', especially for trainee teachers.

Value-added measures of educational progress have been used by education researchers and policy-makers to assess the performance of teachers and schools, contributing to performance-related pay and position in school league tables.
