Our Partnerships

The Purpose

NSEE’s purpose is to close the poverty related attainment gap by improving student outcomes in literacy, numeracy and health & wellbeing.  

We use research evidence, data approaches and collaborative working to improve classroom practices, build leadership capacity and support organisational development.  

NSEE builds on approaches with a track record of improving outcomes for disadvantages students.  The NSEE approach prioritises four key areas of work:

  1. Enhancing the quality of learning and teaching, leadership and working with families & communities
  2. Building leadership capacity to manage change and improvement at all levels
  3. Building expertise for the effective use of the Pupil Equity Fund and understanding about what works and why in closing the attainment gap
  4. Providing opportunities for sharing expertise and developing new practices both locally and nationally.
