Free Twilight: Using nudge theory to improve attendance

16:00–17:30 on 31 January 2019

This twilight will explore a research driven approach to improving attendance and outcomes for disadvantaged secondary students.

  • Are you looking to improve the attendance and also outcomes of your disadvantaged students?
  • Do you need to help shift their engagement within the school community?
  • Do you need a research driven, quick, easy and cheap strategy to make gains?

If so Durrington Research School is running a free twilight based on the idea of ‘nudge theory’ and how this can be used specifically with disadvantaged students to do all of the above.  Not only are the ideas being presented based in research they have also been the central themes of two successful school improvement bids over the last year (one from the DFE and one form the IEE).   From our own longer-term trial in school we are seeing more data showing that the disadvantaged students are now attending more regularly and making greater academic progress.  If you want to find out more simply sign up and come along to our twilight.

There is no cost and the twilight is open to anyone leading or operationally working within attendance in any phase of school.
