Local matters


This research undertaken by Manchester Institute of Education and delivered through the Disadvantage and Poverty Research Network has, through bringing place and the local context into view, provided a new evidence base, methodologies, insights and resources for schools based in high poverty contexts across the North West of England. The research has changed how schools understand and respond to poverty, directly impacted on teaching and learning in classrooms, saved parents significant ‘school day’ expenditure, added depth, knowledge and criticality to teachers’ research ability and informed regional and national education bodies strategy and policy delivery.
