Free Early Reading Showcases

The Wandle Early Reading Showcase is a free, half day training event where senior leaders can share best practice in phonics and early reading.

At the showcase supported schools will have the opportunity to:

  • Learn about the proposed work and development of the Wandle English Hub
  • Take part in a phonics lesson study to explore the teaching of systematic synthetic phonics and reading for pleasure through observations and discussion
  • Explore the elements and importance of strong leadership
  • Complete a school reflection activity to identify the strengths and improvement priorities for their own school
  • Find out about access to subsequent support including applying for future funding for resources/training.

The showcase will be repeated throughout the academic year to maximise support offered to schools.

There are twoplaces for this event for every school and we insist that the headteacher and phonics lead or EY/KS1 senior teacher attend to ensure maximum impact.

Please note that these events are targeted and funded for schools that have an Ofsted rating of RI/Inadequate and those with phonic screening check scores below national.
