Event Description
This course will support English subject leaders and other school leaders with clear approaches to enhancing the teaching of reading in their schools.
Leading on reading is a complex role as pupil’s reading skills impact on all areas of the curriculum. Understanding the required standards and good practice in the teaching of reading is crucial.

Delegates will explore the various ways in which reading is taught and how this can be timetabled. The three main areas of teaching: decoding, fluency and comprehension will be discussed in depth, helping leaders consider good practice and age-related expectations.

We will also:
• unpick provision, considering the roles of book banding, class books and school libraries
• address monitoring and evaluating, ensuring that leaders understand what good practice looks like and how to support those who do not have all the skills/understanding required
• consider whole-school implications arising from discussions of reading in the Ofsted Framework

Training objectives
• reflect upon the systematic nature and outcomes of leading on reading
• have an in-depth overview of the teaching of reading including a clear understanding of the progression of phonics, fluency and comprehension from Y1-6
• understand end of key stage expectations and those of the year groups in between
Learning outcomes
By attending this course participants will:

• deepen knowledge and understanding of processes involved in reading fluently and reading with understanding
• refine and broaden the range of teaching approaches to enable successful and engaged readers
• enjoy using a variety of texts across the day and take away practical strategies to use in school
• be in a better position to teach reading effectively in your own setting
• consider a range of approaches for assessing reading
