    Abstract

    Book synopsis: The Effective Pre-school, Primary and Secondary Education (EPPSE 3-16+) project represents the secondary school phase of a major longitudinal study that started in 1997. The original first phase of the research, the Effective Provision of Pre-school Education (EPPE) project, was designed to explore the impact of pre-school on children's cognitive and social-behavioural outcomes, as well as other important background influences (including family characteristics and the home learning environment). For this purpose, a pre-school sample was recruited to the study at age 3. An additional ‘home’ sample of children who had not attended pre-school was recruited later, at the start of primary school. The whole sample was followed up through primary and secondary school until the end of Key Stage 3 (KS3) when they were 14 years old. The EPPSE 3-16+ project is an extension of this research and follows the same sample (pre-school and ‘home’ children) to the end of KS4 of secondary schooling when they were aged 16. Although EPPSE was originally developed to investigate pre-school effects on development, its extension to Key Stage 4 (KS4) allows for the exploration of any additional effects of primary as well as secondary schooling (see Sylva et al., 2014, Taggart et al., 2014).
