  1. The Newcastle Commission Peter Tymms CEM Centre Durham University

  2. Outline • The origin of the research • Initial findings/thoughts • The datasets • The value-added findings • What has been successful elsewhere • Ways forward

  3. Origins of the research A Promise Creation of the Commission

  4. Initial thoughts and findings • Raw data show consistent differences between LEAs • For Newcastle we saw average results for young children but poorer results as they got older

  5. KS1 % with Level 2 and more Reading

  6. KS2 % with Level 4+ English

  7. % with 5+ grades A* to C

  8. We thought … • Newcastle is below national average • We will find out where and by how much • Look at which LEAs are really good • Learn from them • Learn from other countries • Make recommendations

  9. Data Sources • Analysed several national datasets • ASPECTS • PIPS • MidYIS • Yellis • National data bases KS1, KS2, KS3 & GCSE • Looked a value-added

  10. An example Average GCSE scores

  11. Average Newcastle

  12. Details of LEA residuals Cities in green; Neighbours in red

  13. Conclusions • Newcastle is doing well. Once prior achievement and home background are taken into account, there is no detectable difference between LEAs.

  14. But • Things could be better • If Newcastle is to stand out it must do something very different from other LEAs • What could that be?

  15. NB • History is littered with educational initiatives that have had no impact. • Billions of pounds have been spent to no effect

  16. We tried to find • Cities have made a difference • Large scale projects have had a real impact • Concentration on projects that have been tightly evaluated. • Created an outline for the way forward

  17. Transforming Newcastle • Change will not be easy • Must involve changing classrooms • It will take a long time • Should be based on evidence • Innovations should be continuously monitored • Systemic evaluations

  18. Should we work with one age group?

  19. Examples • Chicago • Thinking skills • Perry-preschool Project • Cumbria and reading interventions • Fife • Dishevelled project

  20. Next Steps Finances Commitment across the board
