Evidence Leads in Education (ELEs)

Kyra Research School has designated, inducted and deployed its two cohorts of Evidence Leads in Education (ELEs). The main purpose of the ELEs is to support school leaders throughout Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, Leicester, Rutland and beyond in using evidence-based practice in their own context to enable school improvement.

All of the ELEs are outstanding teachers, who are also middle and senior leaders, with the skills to support individuals and teams in similar positions in other schools. ELEs are experts in using research and evidence to inform practice in the classroom, and combine their knowledge, interpersonal skills, and coaching skills to help to make evidence-based practice a reality in as many schools as possible.

ELEs have been deployed to support and contribute to the work of the Research School, focusing on encouraging the use of evidence to inform school improvement decisions.
