In 2016, our Year 3 trainees achieved a record number of high quality Professional Research in Specialist Subject (PRiSS) dissertations. Grade A marks were awarded to 28% of these trainees, a great improvement on last year’s 13%.

Our trainees chose many interesting topics for their dissertations, including the academic and social development of children. For example, one project showed how praise and positive reinforcement can help pupils develop a positive attitude towards learning fractions. Another project based on academic development showed how the outdoor environment can promote child literacy. A project with a social focus showed how role play can help children understand real world events, such as feeling empathy towards refugees.
