Professor Robin Alexander

This book brings together a collection of essays on the condition and future of primary education in England from researchers affiliated to the Cambridge Primary Review. The essays map the territory of primary education and provide context, information and insight that aid with the development of classroom skill. 

Topics covered include primary education policy since the 1960s; pupils’ development and learning, their needs and aspirations, and ‘their lives in a diverse society and fragile world’;  what goes on in schools, from the vital early years to educational aims and values, the curriculum, pedagogy and classroom practice, assessment, standards and school organisation; educational ages and stages, the work and training of primary teachers, school leadership, local authorities, funding, governance and policy; and recommendations for policy and practice.

In listing research, EdCentral makes no judgment or recommendation as to its quality, validity or methodology and none should be inferred. Through peer ratings left by education practitioners, EdCentral’s aim is to support the development of a repository of shared knowledge and experience.
