Additional Information: In 2009 the then DCSF introduced the Sinnott Fellowship (in memory of Steve Sinnott and his contribution to the field of education) to learn from some of the best practitioners in schools in outward-facing work. This research report builds on the case studies written about the Fellows’ projects, (www.outwardfacingschools.org.uk/case-studies/) and is in four sections: • Section 1 examines the 30 Fellows, their schools and the impact of the Fellowship. • Section 2 examines what an outward-facing school looks like and the four key reasons why it is important: to link everyone who might enhance students’ learning, wellbeing and opportunities; raise student aspirations and broaden their horizons; ensure that the school is a valuable resource for pupils and community; and to raise student attainment and school improvement. • Section 3 moves on to considering how an outward-facing organisation can be structured and suggests that it should be underpinned by three core principles relating to leadership, staffing and communication. • Section 4 looks at ways to evaluate the impact of outward-facing activity. Although the Sinnott Fellows and their schools were convinced that outward-facing activity made a significant difference, there was very little hard evidence to back this up. Examples of different forms of evaluation are shown and a new 12 stage model explained.
