How high expectations and engagement in primary school drive student learning
CESE has recently published new research and a suite of resources relating to high expectations and student engagement, including:
  • How high expectations and engagement in primary school drive student learning report
  • Warwick Farm Public School case study
  • Liverpool West Public School case study
  • Reflection guide for school networks
  • Reflection guide for schools
The report highlights the significant impact that high expectations and student engagement in Years 5, 6 and 7 have on academic achievement in Year 7.

The research uses Tell Them From Me data from 2015-2017 to track student engagement and teachers’ high expectation and links these to student academic achievement in Year 5 and 7 NAPLAN tests.

The two case studies explore student engagement and effective classroom practices in Liverpool West Public School and Warwick Farm Public School. In these schools, high expectations are maintained and fostered through school culture.

Read the full report, case studies and reflection guides.
