Join us for a free day of phonic observation, reading and early language development CPD and strategic action planning. Find out how New Vision English Hub can support your school to drive standards in reading teaching and early language development.

In the morning you will hear from Shahed Ahmed OBE, Executive Headteacher at Elmhurst Primary School. He will outline Elmhurst’s journey to achieving reading success, which has led to 97% of Year 1 pupils passing the Phonics Screening Check in 2019. Shahed is currently part of the English Hub Council and a Department for Education special advisory committee on Reading for Pleasure.

You will have the opportunity to observe phonic teaching at Elmhurst and consider how to ensure your phonic programme runs effectively. We will also be sharing how we are developing a reading for pleasure culture in our school and how we are accelerating our pupils’ language development. These sessions will be filled with practical strategies you can implement in your school.

You will be invited to write an action plan to apply for funding and free support for your school. New Vision English Hub is able to offer up to £3,000 match funding to schools, with outright funding available to schools who meet specific eligibility criteria.

Headteacher attendance is compulsory. The event is also open to Reading Leaders and Senior Leaders at schools in North East London and Essex.

Schools whose phonics results were below 82% in 2019 can claim £160 per attendee to offset cover costs for attending the Showcase. These schools will be guaranteed at least £500 match funding to support improvements in phonic teaching.

All sessions will take place at Elmhurst Primary School.
