Webinar Duration: 1 hour 54 minutes (approx.)
This webinar will equip headteachers, school leaders, teachers, and reading and literacy leads with advice and practical guidance on implementing the EEF’s newly updated report ‘Improving literacy at key stage 2, which brings together key principles of effective literacy teaching to enhance outcomes for all pupils.
It is essential that pupils become skilled readers and writers at key stage 2 so that they are ready to take on the challenges of secondary school. The EEF reports that disadvantaged pupils are 20% less likely than peers to attain expected standards by the time they leave primary school, underlining the importance of providing effective support at this point in pupils’ schooling.
In this webinar, Megan Dixon, specialist literacy teacher and senior leader who has worked closely with the EEF, DfE and Ofsted, will provide insight into the EEF’s updated recommendations for improving literacy at key stage 2, and explain how schools can translate them into effective classroom practice.
