Accelerate pupil progress with the new SKEIN>Momentum service

logoSkein Momentum is a diagnostic and development process which enables schools where progress has stalled to gain or regain momentum. Delivered by a partnership of CUREE and ASCL, it identifies several key building blocks to help school leaders ensure that all the core activities in their schools are working together and heading in the right direction.

Using information provided by the school via documents, pupil performance data, interviews and discussions, focus groups, observations and surveys, the service produces a confidential evaluation report containing detailed, practical and evidence-based recommendations. School leaders are then supported through one or a number of action research processes for implementing their plan, followed by a concise implementation and progress review
