Evaluation of Whole Education’s Pilot

Summary

  • Spirals of Enquiry is a diferent way of approaching enquiry which confronts, challenges, shifts, paradigms and energises
  • Spirals has the potential to develop a deep professional learning culture, underpinned by research and enquiry, based on seriously understanding the pupil’s experience in school
  • After a short, initial seven-month cycle, schools can demonstrate that vulnerable children are more engaged, that gaps are narrowing and parents feel more connected
  • Spirals isn’t a quick fix approach – it takes time and you have to make time – but it leads to more profound change
  • Spirals requires intentional, committed leadership, dedicated support and teamwork
  • Networking with colleagues from other schools provides added value
  • External facilitation ofers necessary critical friendship and helps maintain momentum
  • Spirals appears to be more challenging for secondary schools, whereas primary schools seem to find it easier to embrace the methodology
  • Further investigation is needed to understand context and phase diferences, and sustainability
