Bradford Research School Training: Improving Literacy in Primary Schools

To be completed by: Mon 07 Jan 2019

Time: -Mon 07 Jan 2019 | Venue:

In taking part in this opportunity you will be part of the pioneering work to use evidence and research to remove barriers to learning and to improve literacy in Bradford’s primary schools, particularly for disadvantaged pupils.

This year Bradford Research School will again deliver its ‘Improving Literacy in Primary Schools’ programme – a 3-day course which will not only develop Literacy leaders but will have an impact on teaching and learning in Bradford schools. Bradford Research School invites 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.

Drawing on information from the Educational Endowment Foundation’s (EEF) Improving Literacy guidance reports the ‘Improving Literacy in Primary Schools’ programme will look at how development of pupils’ oracy skills can lead to improvements in reading and writing. There will be a focus on how reading fluency and reading comprehension strategies can be best taught so that children become independent in their application of these skills. Where writing is concerned, the programme will develop an understanding of a seven-part writing process and how teachers can develop transcription fluency with a view to developing children’s independence in these skills.

  • Day One – Thursday 7th February
  • Day Two – Tuesday 2nd April
  • Day Three – Thursday 13th June

The course costs £295 for all three days and will be held at Dixons Cottingley Academy. Schools can send an additional delegate for £75.
