A key issue across Northamptonshire, at Key Stage 2, is reading. The NCRP will address this through staff training and partnerships, with the aim of raising attainment and improving progress by the end of KS2.
Analysis of KS2 data across the Local Authority, over the past 2 years, indicates that one of the key issues for our county is reading. To address this, in collaboration with two of our Teaching Schools, the LA are devising a 2-year programme of targeted support to raise attainment and progress in reading at the end of KS2.
The project will involve Year 5 and Year 6 teachers and English Subject Leaders. It will be based on the latest EEF research ‘Improving Literacy in KS2’. There is some funding for the first year and we hope to secure additional funding to extend the project beyond this.
Will be held on Monday 22 January at the Park Inn Northampton.
This is a fantastic opportunity to access high quality speakers addressing raising standards in reading across our schools. In the morning delegates will be able to see the state of reading across the county and also access high-quality educational consultants presenting innovative approaches to teaching reading.
In the afternoon sessions Year 6 teachers and subject leads will have the opportunity to access practical ideas and resources that are particularly important to their roles. There will be opportunities to network with other colleagues and an excellent opportunity to browse, and potentially purchase, a wide range of reading resources and books.
