The NFER and Headteacher Update Research Insights articles offer a wealth of evidence-based, best practice and advice covering a range of whole-school and classroom issues.

The latest article, published in January 2015, focuses on the preparations for the new Baselines Assessment at Reception for primary schools and considers the principles of effective assessments.

Previous topics in 2014 included advice for tackling bullying in your schools, how schools and teachers can help to spot the signs of low-level neglect – and what do to if they do – the role of schools in ensuring their pupils and staff are happy and have good wellbeing, and a look at the new primary national curriculum.

We also published two further articles focusing on assessment, including the move to assessment without National Curriculum levels and the introduction of a Baseline Assessment at Reception.

A free PDF of the latest articles from 2015 and 2014 is now available to download for free.

All our Research Insights seek to offer crucial, evidence-based advice to primary school leaders across a range of issues vital to successful primary education and teaching.

Research Insights articles are published in every edition of Headteacher Update and PDFs of articles from 2013 and 2012 are also available from the Supplements section of this website.
