We’re delighted to welcome Mary Myatt to this session focused on taking an evidence-informed approach to school improvement. Mary will consider school improvement through the lens of impact. She will argue that many school processes hinder rather than support outcomes for pupils. She will suggest that the 80:20 rule, a culture of improve, not prove and fewer things in greater depth lead to greater improvement.
