                                          Description

                                          The Literacy Skills Programme for Secondary is an intervention for secondary students who are not at age related expectations in reading, writing and phonics.  The pilot phase of the programme at Riverside Secondary has shown that students make accelerated progress in literacy through daily, intensive, one-to-one intervention that is tailored to the needs of the individual. 

                                          Course participants will receive high quality literacy training and ongoing access to bespoke support from Louise Harding, Literacy Intervention Lead and Reading Recovery Teacher Leader, while you work with the lowest attaining children, who have made very little progress in literacy skills, and transform them into enthusiastic, able and independent readers and writers.  You will change the way people in your school think about literacy teaching and learning. 

                                           

                                          “Every school needs this programme.  The power is in the training of the adult to deliver it, coupled with a passion for literacy.”

                                          “I did lots of stuff before but nothing helped.  Miss understands how I’m learning and [this programme] has helped me in lessons.  I can spot words now.  It makes me feel good.” 

                                          Student at Riverside 

                                           

                                           

                                          Why should I attend? 

                                          You are a Teaching Assistant who has experience of working in KS3/4 and a passion for improving children’s literacy skills. 

                                           

                                          The course will help you:  

                                          • develop your understanding of children’s learning and early literacy acquisition. 
                                          • learn skills to assess and overcome children’s literacy learning barriers. 
                                          • become reflective of teaching decisions and their impact on children’s learning in reading and writing. 
                                          • learn how to develop and use a gradient of challenge in text reading to support progress in reading. 
                                          • understand how to engage parents in supporting literacy at home. 

                                           

                                          You will be provided with: 

                                          • Three half-days of support to understand the assessment processes needed for the intervention. 
                                          • Twenty half-days of professional development to support your delivery of the intervention. 
                                          • Six scheduled support visits to your school.  These provide intensive, individual support and help the school management team to develop an effective and efficient implementation.  
                                          • Additional remote support available as needed.
