About the Event

The revised framework for inspection has brought about a renewed focus on the teaching of reading. Inspectors will undertake a 'deep dive' into a school's reading methods and outcomes.

"During all inspections of infant, junior, primary and lower-middle schools, inspectors must focus on how well pupils are taught to read as a main inspection activity. They will pay particular attention to pupils who are reading below age-related expectations (the lowest 20%) to assess how well the school is teaching phonics and supporting all children to become confident, fluent readers." (OFSTED 2019)

Our one day course will help schools to undertake a 'deep dive' into their teaching of reading - especially in the early years. Given this revised focus, now is the right time to audit and evaluate your teaching of reading.

We will look at a wide varity of examples from schools in the UK and provide practical solutions for improving reading outcomes in your school.

The course will :

  • Look at the priorities of a deep dive into reading

  • Consider carefully the quality of the intent, implementation and impact of a school’s reading curriculum

  • Look at the systematic approach to phonics and evaluate the implementation of this approach – is the pace and progression enough for children to become readers?

  • Enable you to audit the quality of the provision for reading

  • Consider how reading and the development of vocabulary are promoted through the broader curriculum.
