Research and Development activities at The Orchard School

At The Orchard School we are keen to lead, participate in, and disseminate investigative and evaluative projects that will inform the development of effective educational provision for children and young people with SEND.


Closing the Gap

The Orchard School undertook a project as part of the Closing the Gap: Test and Learn programme. This consisted of an investigation into potential factors inhibiting or improving progress for our pupils. A summary analysis is available via the link on the left-hand side of this page.
