Webinar Duration: 46 minutes (approx.)
This webinar will provide headteachers, subject leads, teachers and teaching assistants with an insight into assessment tools and best practice principles they can use to establish, develop and boost current reading and literacy skills in secondary school pupils who have fallen behind.
The transition from Year 6 to Year 7 is a significant milestone in pupils’ education but the disruption caused by COVID-19 is likely to have widened gaps in reading skills. Research by the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) and DfE both point towards a degree of learning loss and children who lack this vital quality in secondary school often feel the impact through every stage of their life.
In this webinar Philip Stock, Deputy Headteacher and Director of English at Greenshaw Research School, part of the Research Schools Network (a collaboration between the EEF and IEE), will explore assessment tools and strategies that schools can use to identify weak points in reading, develop supportive frameworks and implement innovative practice to help bridge the knowledge gap and improve pupil outcomes.
