Changes to free school meal (FSM) eligibility over recent years have a knock-on effect for attainment measures. Is a revised measure of disadvantage needed?  https://ffteducationdatalab.org.uk/2021/10/how-free-school-meal-eligibility-has-been-changing-and-why-we-might-need-new-measures-of-disadvantage/ 

 

Review of research comparing approaches to parental choice of schools and school accountability from more than 15 countries, plus the UK education systems. https://oxfordre.com/economics/view/10.1093/acrefore/9780190625979.001.0001/acrefore-9780190625979-e-650

 

Research about the medium term effects of a randomised, weekly 1:1 tuition programme for the equivalent of year 5 disadvantaged pupils [in Chile], finds the main lasting effects as being improved attendance and engagement with learning at school, as well as some uplift in maths attainment. https://economia.uc.cl/wp-content/uploads/2021/09/dt-565.pdf  

 

Review of interventions for primary pupils struggling with reading and maths finds that tutor-led small groups (five or fewer) and peer-instruction (e.g. year 5 with year 3 pupil) consistently show the most significant effect size. Length of targeted intervention was harder to draw conclusions, but probably for a minimum of two terms.  https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/pdf/10.1002/cl2.1152
