Raising Attainment through Pupil Engagement

Paul and long time collaborator of Hidden Giants Matthew Sowerby worked with six teachers and more than 80 pupils in two primary schools over the space of 8 months on a research project with three aims:

  • We wanted to know how creativity could enhance pupil engagement in the primary school classroom.
  • We wanted to better understand what occurs when pupils take an active role in proposing, developing and deciding the focus and practicalities of their own learning.
  • Additionally we wanted to explore how teachers react and respond to enhanced pupil agency.
