Wave 5 Partner School Launch Event

In September we welcomed our eighteen new Partner Schools to Elmhurst Primary School for our Wave 5 Partner School Induction.

Along with headteachers, Reading leaders and our team of Literacy Specialists, we had a productive morning mapping out our path of support for the academic year. It was great a opportunity for schools to network with each other and share successes as well as school challenges. 

We looked at how fidelity to a single phonics programme, supporting pupils in early language and the development of a reading for pleasure culture can all work together to ensure that our children become lifelong readers.

All of our Partner Schools will receive between 9-12 days of Literacy Specialist support over the two year programme as well as up to £6,000 funding towards phonics resources and training.

New Vision English Hub is looking forward to working with this new cohort of schools to drive forward reading teaching.
