Pre-course Information
This is new course written to support Literacy co-ordinators and EYFS co-ordinators to work together to develop early reading. The course considers the requirements of the new Ofsted Inspection Framework and will ensure that colleagues collaborate to evaluate current policy and practices and identify clear strategic priorities in relation to early reading.

A sandwich lunch will be provided on both days.

By the end of the training participants will have:

  • a greater understanding of the requirements of the new Ofsted Inspection Framework in relation to early reading.

  • evaluated their current provision for early reading, including ethos, policy, teaching and learning opportunities and resourcing

  • jointly identified priorities for development with other colleagues responsible for early reading

  • ensured a rigorous approach to the teaching of reading in their school which develops learners' confidence and enjoyment in reading
