The Primary Review was launched in October 2006. It is an independent inquiry into the condition and future of primary education in England, supported by the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation. It is directed by Professor Robin Alexander, of Cambridge University. The three reports published today are:
- "Classes, Groups and Transitions: structures for teaching and learning", by Peter Blatchford, Susan Hallam, Judith Ireson and Peter Kutnick, with Andrea Creech, Institute of Education and King's College, London;
- "Primary Schools: the built environment", by Karl Wall, Julie Dockrell and Nick Peacey, Institute of Education, London;
- "Learning and Teaching in Primary Schools: insights from TLRP", by Mary James and Andrew Pollard, Institute of Education, London.
All the reports are available at: www.primaryreview.org.ukpublicationsinterimreports.
