Improving Literacy in Primary Schools

This course is designed for primary school leaders who have a responsibility for English to learn more about what the available research says are the best bets for raising standards in reading and writing, with a particular focus on Key Stage 2.

Good literacy skills provide us with the building blocks not just for academic success, but for fulfilling careers and rewarding lives. Yet despite our best efforts, a disadvantaged child in England is still more than twice as likely as their classmates from more advantaged homes to leave primary school without reaching the expected levels in reading and writing.

Drawing on information from the Education Endowment Foundation’s (EEF) literacy guidance reports, and working alongside oracy specialists trained by Voice 21, and who are involved in the Voice Bradford initiative, the ‘Improving Literacy in Primary Schools’ programme will explore specific links between how particular oracy skills link to both reading and writing. There will be a focus too on how to develop independence in reading and writing.

This course is designed for primary school leaders who have a responsibility for English to learn more about what the available research says are the best bets for raising standards in reading and writing, with a particular focus on Key Stage 2.

The course costs £295 for all three days and will be held at Green Lane Primary School. The course price includes a follow up from the Research School on completion of the course, although this will take a different form depending on delegate preference. Schools can send an additional delegate for no additional cost.
