The Bedfordshire Mathematics Team and the Bedfordshire Schools Improvement Advisor conducted a year-long Action Enquiry into raising standards in mathematics at Key Stage 4 across 17 secondary schools. The premise for the enquiry was to find an easy and efficient way of creating a 'needs driven' curriculum for D/C borderline students through question-level analysis and assessment for learning (Alf).  The report and associated materials explores how the group moved from a disparate collection of schools to a 'networked learning community', and how this engendered a climate of joint problem solving, greater risk taking and the sharing of ideas and resources.

This section includes the final research report, a presentation about the project with video clips, a classroom progress assessment tool and a sample activity.
