Over the two academic years 2013/14 and 2014/15, Demos worked with four secondary schools across England to test the potential of ‘coproduction’ as a means of tackling educational disengagement.

This report presents the findings of our evaluation of the pilot, known to schools as Pupil Power. The report covers both our ‘impact’ findings – measurable changes seen in the pupils and staff who participated, and any wider impacts in the four schools – and also ‘process’ findings, relating to how successfully the pilot was implemented and the lessons for other practitioners interested in the approach.
