Children's outdoor play is declining, despite clear links between play, learning and development. Alternative learning initiatives which provide children with a diversity of play opportunities, including the chance to play outdoors, are therefore needed. One such programme, Forest School, is increasing in popularity in the UK and internationally,…

Jerrim, John; Moss, Gemma – British Educational Research Journal, 2019
It is well known that children who read more tend to achieve higher scores in academic reading tests. Much less is known, however, about the link between reading different types of text and young people's reading performance. We investigate this issue using the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) 2009 database, exploring the…

Saeverot, Herner; Kvam, Vegard – British Educational Research Journal, 2019
While teachers and practitioners are increasingly expected to conduct research on their own practice, there is a lot of educational research that is not directly involved in practice. This often leads to unilateral research perspectives on educational practice. Therefore, this article calls for an alternative model of researching educational…

Such poor outcomes have led to calls for…

Kelly, Anthony – British Educational Research Journal, 2019
Measuring ethnic diversity currently amounts simply to counting ethnicities. This makes it impossible to correlate with achievement, to track changes over time or to compare institutions in a meaningful way. It is not clear, for example, whether it is more diverse to have many ethnicities with a large majority in one or two categories, or to have…

While there is growing recognition of the mutually shaping relationship between teaching with information technology (IT) and teachers' beliefs, skills and self-efficacy, there has been a paucity of research attention on the construction of teacher identity during actual IT-assisted in-class teaching and out-of-class networking with students, in a…

Baxter, Jacqueline; Floyd, Alan – British Educational Research Journal, 2019
Multi-academy trusts (MATs) are now a common feature of the English educational landscape.

Jerrim, John; Lopez-Agudo, Luis Alejandro; Marcenaro-Gutierrez, Oscar D. – British Educational Research Journal, 2019
Homework has traditionally been considered positive for students' academic achievement, to the extent that it makes children more responsible while learning.
