Boosting Reading at Primary, Boosting Reading at Secondary

On return to school after closure some of your pupils may require catch-up provision in reading as part of your recovery curriculum. Government guidance is advising schools to prioritise the identification of gaps and re-establish good progress in phonics, reading and vocabulary. Boosting Reading @ Primary and Boosting Reading @ Secondary includes all of these essential elements with a strong evidence base for targeted support for pupils reading just below the expected standard for their age.

This two day training programme for teachers and teaching assistants aims to deepen pedagogical understanding on the balanced reader, teach pupils a wide range of reading skills that are applied strategically and supports the use of high-quality formative assessment to personalise learning.

There is a strong and consistent body of evidence demonstrating the benefit of one-to one tutoring using structured interventions for children who are struggling with literacy (Improving Literacy in KS1, EEF)

Training Content:
A two day modular programme which includes:

• Understanding how pupils learn to read

• The BRP/BRS 3 part lesson structure

• Observing readers and analysing reading behaviours

• Learning to read and reading to learn

• Making links between BRP and other reading contexts to ensure a consistent approach

Training Format:

Two full days online with gap tasks between days. There will be a mix of synchronous and asynchronous activities to stimulate high-quality professional dialogue and collaborative learning.

After completion of training and experience of co-ordinating and teaching pupils in BRP/BRS there will be an opportunity for teachers to uplift to an accredited trainer status. Interested schools can contact Leah Freeman, National Leader NW for more information.
