    Abstract

    This report investigates the way school and classroom processes affect the cognitive progress and social/behavioural development of children between the ages of 6 (Year 1) and 10 (Year 5) in primary schools in England. The research is part of the larger longitudinal study of Effective Pre-School and Primary Education (EPPE 3-11) funded by the Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF) that is following children’s cognitive and social/behavioural development from ages 3 to 11 years. The EPPE 3-11 study investigates both pre-school and primary school influences on children’s attainment, progress and social/behavioural development. This report describes the results of quantitative analyses based on a subsample of 1160 EPPE children across Year 1 to 5 of primary education. The research builds on the earlier analyses of children’s Reading and Mathematics attainments and social/behavioural outcomes in Year 5 for the full EPPE 3-11 sample (see Sammons, 2007a; 2007b), by investigating relationships between children’s outcomes and measures of classroom processes, collected through direct observation of Year 5 classes in 125 focal schools chosen from the larger EPPE 3-11 data set. The analyses also explore patterns of association between children’s outcomes and broader measures of overall school characteristics derived from teacher questionnaires and Ofsted inspection reports for this sub-sample of schools.
