Speech Bubbles was one of five projects chosen to be part of the Learning About Culture research programme led by the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) and the Royal Society for the Arts (RSA). We were thrilled to be part of this initiative, allowing us to contribute to national research on the impact of our work.
In 2018-2019, 9000 pupils in 400 schools across England took part in trials to find out if different cultural learning approaches can help boost primary pupils’ achievement. For further information about the research please click here. As part of this research programme we delivered Speech Bubbles in four new primary schools in Tower Hamlets.
Speech Bubbles is being evaluated by a team of independent evaluators led by the University of London – Institute of Education and the Behavioural Insights Team.
This trial will evaluate the effect of Speech Bubbles on the communication skills and reading abilities of Key Stage 1 children with Speech, Language and Communication Needs. The results of this project will make a valuable contribution to understanding the development of children and significance of drama and storytelling in improving pupil attainment.
The delivery and evaluation of the programme has been funded through a partnership between the RSA and the EEF, with support from Arts Council England, the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, Foyle Foundation and Bank of America Merrill Lynch.
