Reading – A Whole School Approach to Greater Depth
For: English subject lead teachers, deputy/assistant heads, reading leaders, phase leaders
Gaining Consistency: a whole school approach to greater depth reading
The 2019 Ofsted framework requires schools to ensure that all learners will receive a high-quality, ambitious education and that leaders take on or construct a curriculum that is ambitious. Therefore, it is vital that our English reading curriculum reflects this in every year-group across the phases.
This online session will consider and explore:
- the characteristics of greater depth readers across the year groups
- how to provide breadth and depth in the English reading curriculum for all pupils
- strategies and approaches for encouraging and developing greater depth readers across all phases
This course is part of the ‘Gaining Consistency’ series: a programme of CPD for those with a top-level view of the English curriculum in primary schools, focused on looking strategically at ensuring progression in the strands of the English curriculum, both across and within year-groups, and developing effective whole-school approaches to teaching and learning within each strand. Each session will focus on a different aspect of English, meaning that schools can take part in all sessions or choose those that are most relevant to their school development priorities.
This is a series of four sessions. Each session will be stand alone, therefore it is advisable but not essential for staff to attend all sessions.
