Bespoke School Support

After reviewing your action plan, we will be able to offer some schools further free support. This includes:

  • Audits: This is a supportive process which will begin with a full-day school-based audit of provision. A member of the English Hub Team will support you to write a detailed Development Plan. We will provide you with funding and on-going remote support to implement the Development Plan. We will then offer another full-day in order to review implementation of the Development Plan, identify successes and decide next steps.
  • Intensive school support: From September 2019 we will be able to provide a free package of more intensive support offered by our Literacy Specialist Team. A Literacy Specialist will be able to provide your school with 6 days of bespoke support which can include:
    • Support with writing an action plan
    • Advice on choosing and using phonics resources effectively
    • Support with planning phonics lessons
    • Leading INSETs
    • Observing lessons and offering feedback
    • Modelling teaching and team teaching

Priority will be given to schools who can demonstrate a need for support and capacity to effect change. The need for support will be determined based on school context, including Pupil Premium figures, Ofsted rating and Phonics Screening Check results.
