Best Practice in Primary Reading and Writing
A solid foundation in reading and writing is crucial to a child’s success as they progress through primary school, into secondary school, and then in later life. But, in spite of the hard work of teachers and pupils, too many children are currently not reaching the expected reading and writing levels at age 7 and age 11.
The coalition Government is determined to raise literacy standards in our schools, especially those not achieving the expected level.

Figures show that around 780 million adults worldwide cannot read or write. Government surveys suggest that the UK’s standards in English have slipped in comparison with other countries. Ofsted have called on providers of early years, schools and further education to renew a national drive for higher standards of literacy, and for more engagement with parents and learners.
Ofsted’s reports over the last couple of years, Moving English Forward (published in March 2012) and Removing Barriers to Literacy (in January 2011) highlighted that too many of our children and young people are falling behind at the beginning of education and lack the practical skills to successfully make their way in the adult world.
The audience at Best Practice in Primary Reading and Writing will include: head teachers and teachers, heads of school, directors of education, directors of children’s services, education consultants, academia, school inspectors, and all relevant job roles from across the education landscape. Organisations involved include primary schools, colleges, LEAs, voluntary and community sector, academia, private sector, and all those with an interest or who are engaged in creating best practice in primary reading and writing.

The new Ofsted framework and the 2012 Teachers’ Standards focus strongly on these topics:
‘The teaching of reading, writing, communication is highly effective and cohesively planned and implemented across the curriculum’ (Ofsted)
This course will present practical ideas to ensure primary pupils secure strong outcomes, and show teachers how they can best demonstrate good progress in English and literacy lessons. A range of excellent resource materials for the classroom will be given to each delegate.
