A new book documents how staff at a primary school built on a previous study by Cambridge researchers to create an inclusive learning environment - driven by a shared belief in teachers’ power to enhance every child’s capacity to learn.

 

For many in education, pressures put on teachers to meet centralised outcomes have compounded the long-established culture of ‘ability labelling’ in the UK education system, in which children are categorised as ‘bright’, ‘average’ or ‘less able’, with expectations set on that basis.
