The EEF Guide to Supporting School Planning: A Tiered Approach to 2021

This guide aims to support school leaders with their planning for this unpredictable academic year. It proposes a tiered model that focuses upon (1) high-quality teaching, (2) targeted academic support, and (3) wider strategies. It has been developed in partnership with expert school leaders from across the country.

Many of the featured approaches supported by the best available evidence will be familiar to experienced school leaders. This guide supplements such expertise, offering handy questions and recent school case studies that can hold up a mirror to existing leadership plans.
