Supporting the lowest 20% readers – London

20th October 2022

Supporting the lowest 20% readers CPD

The current OFSTED Inspection Framework has a clear focus on the lowest 20% of readers, with a mandatory deep dive into early reading and reading in primary schools. Reading – and phonics – will also be a significant area of a secondary school inspection too!

There is an expectation that reading is a high priority for all schools so that all pupils become fluent, confident readers. This course focuses all aspects of the reading curriculum and provides practical guidance and resources to support the lowest 20%.

  • OFSTED Deep Dives – Early reading and whole school priorities
  • Developing an outstanding Reading Culture
  • Barriers many children have to reading
  • Working with parents
  • Progression of reading skills and behaviours
  • Recent research outcomes about reading for your most vulnerable readers
  • The importance of understanding Tier 2 and Tier 3 vocabulary to develop comprehension

This course is aimed at:

  • Teachers
  • English leads
  • Senior leaders

This course is for the whole day from 9.30 am until 3.30 pm and there will be activities for delegates to complete plus useful resources for use in the classroom.

9.30 am – 3.30 pm

This was a really useful course. It clearly signposted what Ofsted would want to see, gave insight into rationale and theory and provided practical examples and resources to support progress in achieving desired outcomes. I have left with a clear vision about what I need to achieve and how I am going to do it. Thank you.

Claire Sansom The Springfield Centre Deep Dive into reading 26/01/2022

Really clear, methodical coverage of all aspects of reading curriculum developmental stages & ways of over-coming hurdles explored – e.g. plateau at 6-8. Practical application based on research – came away with good ideas what this might look like in practice. Great recommendations, websites, sharing good practice. Thank you!
