Teaching Methods: Tyne and Wear

Volume 495: debated on Monday 6 July 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families if he will make an assessment of the results of the spaced learning experiment on accelerated learning in Monkseaton school in Tyneside; and if he will make a statement. (284436)

The Department is aware of the ‘spaced learning’ teaching method used at Monkseaton school. There do not appear to have been a sufficiently robust or peer-reviewed evaluation of the approach which would allow any clear link between the teaching method and pupils’ learning to be established.
