EOS
By Design

The EOS Education Design Team will work with you to undertake a full EOS School Review based on a pedagogical approach to student and world-relevant education and design a bespoke Action Plan and time-specific journey to achieve your ambition.

We strongly believe that with the right amount of will, creativity and support we can all change education and schools for the better, and with it lives. And if we can change just one or two lives (be it educators or students) then we can leave a tiny dent in the world, which will be a better place for it.

EOS Education work with schools, organisations and partners across the UK, and indeed the world, who also seek to approach education in a different – and better – way. We strive not only to think about education differently, re-imagining what it could look like, but to actually do it… and with staggering results.

EOS School Review© — A School Design Tool 

EOS By Design launches with the exclusive ‘Lift Off’ design which includes the EOS School Review where two EOS Consultants (including at least one current Headteacher) conduct a year-long review programme. This includes a full review of your school against KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) and against the EOS Rubric (based on the EOS principles and pedagogies) followed by Leadership and Classroom Coaching. An Action Plan is co-designed with your EOS team including targets and outcomes for your school, pupils, staff and governors. There is then the option to add one of the EOS By Design upgrade ‘bolt-ons’ (1. Velocity, 2. Accelerate, 3. Propel or 4. Orbit), depending upon the speed at which you want to travel!

The Action Plan is then reviewed and evaluated towards the end of the year-long cycle and an Impact Evaluation Report is generated against targets, KPIs and next steps. The EOS School Review includes 2.5 days equivalent review and evaluation plus telephone enquiry & interview and the completion of a formal EOS School Review Report and end of year Impact Evaluation Report. In addition to this, each of the EOS By Design upgrade ‘bolt-ons’ then offer an escalating amount of face-to-face and virtual coaching, mentoring and training.

EOS by Design Case Study:
Scartho Junior Academy

Why

As a school, our key aim is to ‘Develop a Lifelong Love of Learning’.  We want all of our children to have a burning desire to want to come to school and to enable them to have experiences (and learning) that live with them for a lifetime.  The quest to find the optimum conditions we need to enable all children to learn and to succeed beyond their mis-predicted potential is never-ending.  The importance of developing a culture of learning within a school can never be underestimated.

After hearing Carl Jarvis speak I invested a considerable amount of time extensively researching the EOS principles and pedagogy and visiting a number of flagship schools around the country, including Hartsholme Academy in Lincoln.  I was particularly struck by the following:

• the rigour that goes into this pedagogical approach and the thinking behind the planning associated with it;

• how important it is to value your staff and how important it is for them to be fully involved in the journey;

• how REAL Projects and the learning eco-system (including flexible immersive learning environments) were not a product or ‘thing’ that you could just buy.  It was not about copying or lifting it out of Hartsholme Academy and slotting it into my school – it was a different way of thinking – a different design;

• the key principles – particularly around everything having an authentic, adult-world outcome which has value and longevity, impacting on the community or the wider world.

Like all schools, we have got great children who are motivated and are on the path to becoming great learners and a staff team that are hard-working, dedicated and who devote a huge amount of time to developing amazing learning experiences for every child in our school.  After listening to Carl, I was absolutely convinced that the approach to learning that he had developed was how I wanted my school to evolve.  Little did I know of the amazing journey that my staff, children and I were to embark upon and how it would develop in such a short space of time!

How

In June 2015, my Deputy Head went to a pedagogy design day that was facilitated by EOS Education at Hartsholme Academy before embarking on planning our first trial REAL Project and developing flexible, immersive learning environments within our school in preparation for the new school year.

The 2015/16 academic year kicked-off with an inspiring day led by Carl Jarvis.  This was met with an array of amazingly positive comments from all staff.  It gave them all a real insight into the direction in which we were going and the potential that we all had to truly change lives.  As well as this, Carl then also supported year groups to plan for their Spring Term Projects. Of everything that we have undertaken and developed so far, the EOS School Review process has been by far the most powerful.  From this day, we had a key report document that identified our strengths, potential barriers and areas of development and a suggested design that EOS would lead with our team.

We co-designed the following facilitation with the EOS team, ready for the Spring and Summer Terms

1 A series of staff CPD sessions/workshops to focus on developing knowledge and understanding of the 6 elements of REAL Projects, led by the EOS team;

2 Four days of Senior EOS Classroom Coaching time to support the implementation of the above and to focus on embedding the practice of lead teachers within the school;

3 Facilitation of a wider Strategic Leadership Day to focus on ownership and delivery of the vision, including roles and responsibilities in relation to this pedagogy and action planning;

4 Four days of EOS Leadership Coaching for the headteacher and members of the leadership team.

5 2-Day EOS Odyssey in September 2016

6 Signposting of most relevant EOS schools for enquiry visits and deep dives around aspects of REAL Projects and Challenge Based Learning;

7 Impact visit in October 2016 as part of the EOS School Review process.

Impact

The journey described above has been key in driving forward our approach to REAL Projects (curriculum design) and the learning eco-system.  Our aim has always been to be guided by the EOS principles.  The challenge was how we intertwine these principles into our already well-developed and embedded learning culture.

1 Children: The authentic outcomes coupled with the public exhibition elements of REAL Projects have enabled our children to have more ownership of their learning and their levels of engagement have skyrocketed!

2 Newly established Teaching & Learning Leadership Team: This has resulted in true distributive leadership with an ownership of their identified leadership areas.  The compelling vision is very strongly held and understood by this team;

3 Teachers:  All staff have a much better understanding of how children learn and the importance of passion.  All teachers now have a highly developed understanding of the 6 key elements of REAL Projects;

4 Curriculum: We have now completed three termly planning cycles for REAL Projects.  All year groups have delivered on excellent authentic outcomes and public exhibitions;

5 Outcomes: The quality and consistency of writing and the presentation of work has improved considerably. 

6 Motivation: Whilst we have always had a highly motivated staff team, this has now risen to even higher levels.  The levels of teamwork are also at an all-time high!

7 Networking: We have developed some great collaborations with other schools in the local area and beyond.

I whole-heartedly believe that we have come such a long way in a very short period of time.  We all know that we have got a way to go to further refine and develop our approaches, but I also know that I have never seen our children so engaged with their learning and this is more than enough motivation to keep us going on our journey with the EOS principles and pedagogies and, of course, working with the EOS Education Team.
