We are now in our third year of supporting schools as an English Hub and would like to welcome you into our school, albeit virtually, to see phonics teaching in action, hear the key messages of the English Hub Programme and access our support.
We are offering a free, twilight event for Head Teachers and Reading Leaders to learn about the work of the English Hubs, see phonics teaching in action and find out how you can access our support on Thursday 18th March 2021 4.00pm – 5.30pm
In order for us to have a better understanding about your school before the event please could you complete this booking form as soon as possible: Booking Form.
You can claim up to £160 in costs for supply cover to attend the virtual showcase if your headteacher attends the event and your school meets any two of the following criteria:
lower than average percentage of pupils meeting the expected standard in the Year 1 phonics screening check in either 2018 or 2019 (82%);
low attainment in the bottom 20% of children in the phonics screening check;
a higher than average proportion of children eligible for pupil premium in the school;
Ofsted judgement of Requires Improvement or Inadequate;
a high proportion of groups considered hard to reach such as boys; and,
schools referred by local partners (e.g. NLEs, LAs, Opportunity Area teams).
