The partnership between CPRT and Pearson was committed to developing support services and materials for schools in accordance with the principles below. To find out more, click on the image to the right.
Entitlement. Our services aimed to help schools to offer all children a primary education that is visionary, principled, broad, balanced, relevant and rich, and is taught to a high standard in all its aspects.
Equity. Our services aimed to help schools provide for all children, regardless of their circumstances, equality of educational access and equity in educational provision and outcome.
Excellence. Our services were designed to help schools to achieve excellence in learning and teaching and in professional development and leadership.
Expertise. Our services aimed to strengthen professional expertise and institutional capacity in support of the above; and are supported and designed by experts in the fields of childhood, pedagogy, curriculum, assessment, leadership and professional development.
Empowerment. Our services were designed to help schools to enable children to take control of their learning and lives in accordance with the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, and to enable teachers to exercise the responsible and informed autonomy that is the mark of a mature profession. We therefore offered guidance rather than prescription, and respect schools’ professional discretion and understanding of their own contexts and communities, supporting them in making their own decisions.
Evidence. Our services were built on the aims, ideas, evidence and proposals of the Cambridge Primary Review and the work of those others who share the commitment of CPR and the Trust to evidence, vision and quality in primary education and Pearson’s commitment to demonstrating the impact on learning provision and outcomes of its products and services.
