Building on the most comprehensive enquiry into English primary education for 40 years.

  • Independent
  • Authoritative
  • Evidence-based
  • Visionary

We are the leading institution for the CPRT regional network South East Region. This mostly covers Kent, Medway and South Essex, but this does not preclude areas just over the border of neighbouring Local Authorities such as East Sussex and Surrey and outer London areas such as Bexley and Bromley.

Vanessa Young is the CPRT Coordinator for this Region.

As the regional dissemination centre for the Cambridge Primary Review Trust we work in this deep partnership to support the dissemination and development of the core principles and priorities of the Cambridge Primary Review.

  • be wholly committed to CPR/CPRT principles and priorities;
  • be keen to work in partnership with CPRT and other schools;
  • be prepared to give due prominence in their publicity to their CPRT affiliation;

EQUITY

Tackle the continuing challenge of social and educational disadvantage, and find practical ways to help schools to close the overlapping gaps in social equity and educational attainment.

VOICE

Advance children’s voice and rights in school and classroom, in accordance with the UN Convention of the Rights of the Child.

COMMUNITY

Promote community engagement and cohesion through school-community links and a community curriculum that supplements and enriches the national curriculum, and by developing communal values in school and classroom.

 

SUSTAINABILITY

Embed sustainability and global citizenship in educational policy and practice, linking to the UN agenda for global education after 2015.

CURRICULUM

Develop a broad, balanced and rich entitlement curriculum which responds to both national and local need, eliminates the damaging division of status and quality between core and non-core, and teaches every subject, domain or aspect to the highest possible standard.

PEDAGOGY

Develop a pedagogy of repertoire, rigour, evidence and principle, rather than mere compliance, with a particular emphasis on fostering the high quality classroom talk which children’s development, learning and attainment require.

 

ASSESSMENT

Encourage approaches to assessment that enhance learning as well as test it, that support rather than distort the curriculum and that pursue standards and quality in all areas of learning, not just the core subjects.

AIMS

Develop and apply a coherent vision for 21st century primary education; enact CPR aims through curriculum, pedagogy and the wider life of the school.
