SHINE has set some ambitious goals to meet by 2025

Improve the school attainment of children across the North of England

We will do this by:

  • working with partners to invest at least £25 million into education across the North West, North East and Yorkshire
  • raising awareness of the educational barriers facing children from disadvantaged backgrounds
  • building partnerships with others who share our vision and objectives.

Further the knowledge base of what works in overcoming educational barriers

We will do this by:

  • assessing the impact of everything we do
  • sharing our key successes and learning with the widest possible audience
  • supporting education programmes across different communities in the North, from urban cities like Leeds and Newcastle, to rural and coastal areas like Cumbria and Scarborough.

Champion the power of great teaching to change children’s lives

We will do this by:

  • helping inspirational teachers to deliver evidence-based approaches in the classroom
  • developing teachers as innovators and helping them to improve the education system from within
  • building a movement of excellent teachers with a shared belief in the most disadvantaged children.
