This research aimed to evaluate the effects of ECaW on:

  • teaching, of both class teachers and one-to-one tutors
  • pupils’ attitudes and perceptions
  • the whole school

It also how ECaW was implemented, including investigating processes which supported or hindered its effectiveness, and identified features of good or bad practice.
