Description

Copthorne Primary School, Horton Grange Primary School and Horton Park Primary School invite headteachers and subject leaders to join this programme in order to consider effective practice in the teaching of Reading across the primary phase. The three schools will share aspects of their practice that have helped them to maintain positive pupil outcomes at the end of Key Stage 2 in 2016. There is no single strategy that resulted in these outcomes: the schools have focused on teaching and learning and developed a culture of continuous improvement. The schools will share their individual approaches for attendees to consider and adapt to their own school’s needs and context.

Session 1 (13:00-15:00, 30th September 2016) - Whole-School Leadership of Reading: A session for the Headteacher and the English Subject Leader to consider the whole-school approach to reading and pupils’ entitlement presented in the Assessment and Reporting Arrangements (ARA) statutory guidance.

Organiser of Teaching Reading

Our pupils and students deserve good schools where they fulfill their potential. School leaders face a wide range of challenges to achieve this but the expertise to address these exists in schools within or beyond our own community. School leaders are best placed to drive effective school improvement. At different moments in time, schools will be in a position where they can provide support to their peers, formally or informally, or they need to access support from other schools to add capacity to address a specific priority. Schools are increasingly working with each other in this way as they continue on their journey of improvement – celebrating and sharing all that is effective and addressing the challenges together to the benefit the wider educational community and the life chances of our young people. This empowers leaders and their staff and gives schools a central role in developing a self-improving and sustainable school-led system. To effectively implement this model we need to utilise every schools’ passion, intelligence and talents. 

Exceed Teaching Schools are committed to utilising the resources available to them – including teachers’ and leaders’ skills, expertise, and practice – to the benefit of all schools across the Lancashire and West Yorkshire region. Through bespoke tailored support, Exceed Teaching Schools' Alliance facilitates a range of quality assured school improvement opportunities “for schools by schools” including: school to school support to address identified priorities including via the deployment of Exceed Teaching Schools' Specialist Leaders of Education (SLE) and Local Leaders of Education (LLE); evidence-based practice; leadership development programmes; collaborative professional learning networks; and school-centered initial teacher training (ITT).
