The Trust exists to extend and build upon the work of the Cambridge Primary Review and advance the cause of high quality primary education for all children in accordance with CPR’s core aims, principles and evidence. The Trust will:
- Continue to address the themes, questions, priorities and challenges that lie at the heart of CPR’s mission to maximise the quality of young children’s primary education.
- Help schools and teachers to build institutional, individual and collective capacity to respond effectively yet discriminatingly to the requirements of policy, but also to address those important aspects of professional practice and larger educational questions with which policy does not deal.
- Continue the task of national and international dissemination and discussion of CPR’s evidence, ideas and principles, using a variety of print, broadcast and online media.
- Revisit and where necessary extend CPR’s evidence base in relation to the above.
- Continue to engage with and seek to influence government, opposition, professional associations and other key national stakeholders in pursuit of a generous and relevant vision of primary education grounded in evidence and achieved through sound policy and practice.
- Review, consolidate and extend the CPR’s professional network, its databases and its regional centres.
- Organise at appropriate intervals a major international conference to foreground evidence and issues germane to the advancement of high quality primary education and to showcase the work of the Trust, its partners and others sharing its vision.
