Sutton Trust Evaluation Project

The Peers Early Education Partnership (PEEP) is a birth to 5 intervention programme that aims to improve the life chances of children from a disadvantaged area of Oxford by raising their educational achievement.

The evaluation took place in three discrete phases over the duration of the project: February – May 2006 (Year 1), February – May 2007 (Year 2) and February – May 2008 (Year 3). The data was collected by systematic observations and the design incorporated a number of different qualitative methodologies including diary notes (from the research officer and key staff); observations/interviews; individual and group discussions with staff and users; questionnaires to staff and users and the monitoring of participation levels.
