Extensive research, including studies like “What works best"- agree there are key solutions. These include:-

  1. High, positive expectations and explicit teaching - are linked with better outcomes for all students.
  2. Effective classroom management. Fair rules with consistent consequences are important for creating the conditions for learning.
  3. Collaborating with colleagues. A whole-of-school focus is needed to develop a culture of excellence.
