Event description

Description

Leadership Briefings offer a valuable opportunity for headteachers to receive updates and insights on current issues, developing legislation and new initiatives as well as challenges on the horizon from the Lincolnshire Learning Partnership and Lincolnshire County Council. Attendees will be able to provide feedback to the Partnership and the Council and to network with their peers.

Registration is open to all headteachers, deputy headteachers and acting headteachers as well as the CEOs of Multi-Academy Trusts and their deputies. Please note, however, that if demand exceeds the number of available spaces, schools may be asked to limit attendance to two delegates.

Registration opens at 8:15am, at which time a light breakfast will also be available. All Briefings start at 8:45am sharp and run until 12pm with the option of staying for lunch and afternoon developmental sessions, locality lead one to ones and networking until 3pm.

Topic of session

Closing the Vocabulary Gap - The Start of a Child's School Journey

Time

The development sessions will be run following each of the leadership briefing sessions between 12:30 and 13:30.

Content to be covered

"The correlation between vocabulary size and life chances is as firm as any correlation in educational research. Vocabulary is important, because it embodies and communicates concepts. There is a substantial disparity between the breadths of vocabulary to which different children are exposed. In the United States, the landmark Hart and Risley study found that children from the most disadvantaged backgrounds encountered far fewer words, and heard a narrower range of vocabulary, than their more advantaged peers. Over four years, they heard 30 million fewer words. While the methods used for the Hart and Risley study have been criticised, subsequent studies using different methods have confirmed the findings: the correlation between socio-economic status and volume of caregiver-to-child speech has been replicated consistently and reliably." Ofsted School Inspection Update January 2019

Our 45 minute afternoon development session will be led by the Early Years Team and focus on ways to develop cultural capital and begin to close the vocabulary gap at the start of a child's school journey, into Year 1 and beyond.
